The ceremony was held in the Green Taverners Suite at Plymouth Argyle, who provided an excellent meal and entertainment for 69 graduates, plus their guests. James Carter helped celebrate the end of NCS October by playing his music throughout the evening. NCS Graduates, their families and their team leaders had a two course dinner together whilst sharing stories and saying their final farewells. Throughout the evening, the graduates had the opportunity to sign up as an assistant team leader for NCS Summer 2017.
NCS October is traditionally a smaller programme, consisting of a four-day residential in Weymouth and Portland and a three-day SAP Project at PAFC. In Weymouth and Portland, individuals took part in adventurous activities, such as mountain biking and kayaking.
For the SAP Projects, Dwain Morgan, Argyle’s NCS Spokesman, said: “Two group’s SAP Projects were to create a sensory garden for a blind care home, using different texture, smells, feels and tastes. The Sensory Garden is not finished to leave a legacy, and a continuing project for future NCS projects. It was such a fantastic SAP and it was great to see new ideas from our October participants.
“Each individual represented their families and schools very well. It was brilliant to see everyone come together and we’re already looking forward to NCS Summer 2017.”
