REGENERATION PROJECT

The Penicuik Town Hall regeneration Project wants to engage with a group of young people from Penicuik High School next week in order to set up a steering group of Young people from the Penicuik area.  This would involve you giving input into the future of the Town Hall and how it may benefit young people in the town.  I am calling for up to 8 students from S1-S6 who would like to be involved initially next week in an hour long engagement session. If you are interested in Architecture or related fields then this would be a good opportunity for you.  If you are interested please meet Mr Biddick this morning straight after Registration in the Head Teacher’s office.  Thanks.
