Timothy Hackworth Museum – Shildon
Offenders helped to build a sensory garden by building groundwork, dry stone walls and laying cables.
St Catherine’s Community Association - Crook
Offenders decorated the community centre and thanks to this work the association has been able to utilise scarce funds to ensure that the community centre stays open. Staff from the association have commented that “the work was completed to a high standard of quality and has certainly helped to make the community centre look brighter and tidier.”
Trimdon Grange Infant and Nursery School
Offenders built and installed rustic seating in the school woodland area. This was well received and the school children can now enjoy listening to stories in the woodland park and learn about the environment in a safe and secure setting.
Murton Catholic Church Cemetery
The cemetery was overgrown and inaccessible so the local community asked if Durham Tees Valley Probation Trust could help. Apart from cutting back all of the overgrown vegetation, offenders also helped to install new paths and erect fences.
