Rugby MP Mark Pawsey takes part in the ‘Big Challenge’

Rugby MP Mark Pawsey joined a team of volunteers and park ranger Trevor Hyde in Caldecott Park recently to take part in the ‘Big Challenge’ community volunteer day.

Mark joined sixty young people who have taken part in the ‘Challenge Network’ as part of the National Citizen’s Service completing a variety of different tasks such as painting fences, cleaning the tennis courts, litter picking, weeding and decorating the band stand.   

Mark said:

“I was delighted to support the ‘Big Challenge’ at Caldecott Park and it was great to see so many young people involved in it and being active as volunteers within the local community.”

Mark commented:

“The National Citizen Service (NCS) is a Government initiative open to all 16 and 17-year-olds in England. It helps young people build their skills for work and life, take on new challenges and meet new friends.

It is a great initiative and it was fantastic that these young people chose Caldecott Park as the focus for their community project.” 

Mark concluded:

“Caldecott Park is a real asset for Rugby and I would strongly recommend people to visit it before the unseasonably good weather inevitably comes to an end!”
