In the Autumn of 2017 we launched the Beyond Boundaries pre-apprenticeship programme at Somerford Grove Adventure Playground. Along with professional playground builders ‘Build Up’ we recruited 7 young people aged 16yrs to 20yrs to design and build a new sand pit play area which was named ‘The Village of the shipwrecked boat’.
The Beyond Boundaries partnership with HarPA attracted Tottenham regeneration developers who helped with funding the project. Some partners committed to working with HarPA at the Tottenham Charter event held at Tottenham Town Hall earlier in the year, like Volker Fitzpatrick engineering and construction company who are currently engaged in redesigning and constructing the Northumberland Park railway station.
We also worked in partnership with Tottenham Hotspur Foundation who supported the project. The project supported the recruits into further training and employment where the basic tools & health & safety training could be used on their CV and where we will also act as referees.
