This week VODA unveiled their Little Free Library at The Rising Sun Country Park. This project was developed and constructed with students from Longbenton High School Melrose department with support from SAINT and CAN DO volunteers.
Little Free Library is a community scheme where members of the public are encouraged to take and leave their favourite books. The Rising Sun Country Park is a great venue for the Little Free Library and it is hoped that visitors to the centre will enjoy borrowing and leaving books when at the park.
The young people involved learned some valuable skills in construction, teamwork and joinery. Volunteers also got a lot out of working with these young people to achieve their goal of installing the Little Free Library.
If you have an idea for a social action project in your community, please contact Josie Robinson.
