See & Hear free media training for young people

As part of See & Hear, a community project working with The Nettles Volunteer Group, we are offering free media training for young people aged 16 – 25.  Two free workshops taking place at the National Centre for Craft and Design in Sleaford, will give you the the skills to create short videos of The Nettles Volunteer Group, who meet monthly to maintain The Nettles green space in Sleaford. You will then be asked to share what you have learnt with the Nettles volunteers, as part of this inter-generational community project.

This is great opportunity to learn new journalistic skills, as well as contribute something valuable to your local community.
