Students make snowmen to give Buxton a festive feel

Giving a helping hand to Buxton's Town Team have been 20 Year 9 pupils from Buxton Community School.

Each year the Town Team put up an array of decorations as part of the Buxton in Bloomin’ Winter Project and were delighted to get additional support from the students.

The pupils have been hard at work over the last few months creating gorgeous snowmen from planks of wood donated to the school.

The students measured, sanded, and painted the snow men before cutting out noses and scarfs to decorate them. They also named some of the snowmen.

All the students are on a short DANCOP programme which is designed to inspire and encourage young people to reach their true potential and broaden their horizons both for future education such as FE, HE and University and also within the wider community.

With the help and guidance of Debbie Melville, they have been involved in volunteering to build confidence and communication skills with people outside their familiar environment.

Working with the Town Team has helped them to have a sense of achievement in their work and be proud of the local community.
