Project Update – April 2021

By 1st April 2021 News

In May 2014, a small group of dedicated people set up what we have now come to recognise as The Sawtry Youth Project (SYP). Fast forward to 2021 and the achievement of this dedicated group, working in partnership with the Parish Council, is real!
Over the years, we have asked you to donate to our various fundraising initiatives, get involved in filling in questionnaires and attending meetings, like and follow us on Facebook and support us at events. Through the collective coming together of all these things, our village have raised an incredible £20,000! Thank you to everyone who has supported this journey. A journey that has seen us a bit quiet and a bit deflated at times, but with grit, determination and the backing of all of you, we have achieved our goal.
The skatepark designs are drawn, all the money is in place and SYP are ready to hand over the baton to the Parish Council, to complete the final leg of the journey- the exciting end of the journey, which will finally, after all this time, see a skatepark for Sawtry.
We are incredibly proud of our collective achievement- thanks to every one of you for all the support over the years. We could not have done this without you.
