WARM sunshine, the smell of BBQ and freshly-cut grass, World Cup hopes and dreams, this is what a British summer is all about.

One final amazing piece to the jigsaw for Argyle Community Trust and young people in our region is the start of our annual National Citizen Service (NCS) Programme.

This special experience for people of school-leaving age encompasses the four phases of adventure, discovery, social action and graduation. Our first wave of NCS will leave Home Park on Monday, July 2 for a week at the Ultimate Adventure Centre in Bideford.

Participants will get stuck into kayaking, high ropes, raft-building, abseiling, Total Wipeout, mountain biking and more, moving to Marjon University for week two and experience life on a campus, with some added treats.

NCS then moves into a Social Action Project, providing the community with a project that makes a genuine difference to local lives and the adventure is complete with a graduation in September.

This is just a snap-shot from the first of many NCS waves this summer and you can find out more about our once-in-a-lifetime experience by contacting NCS Officer Todd Hanrahan on todd.hanrahan@pafc.co.uk
