Last year, a group of students carried out painting of benches and helped with the refurbishment of Palace Green Pavilion.

It is organised by the Berwick Youth Hostel Association in partnership with Berwick Town Council which gave approval in principle to a group of students coming to the town again.

The type of work they would carry out this time is still to be confirmed.

Cllr David Blackburn said: “It’s good publicity for the council.”

Cllr Anne Forbes added: “The D of E people who came last year did a lot of work on Palace Green which would never have been managed without them.”
