PEOPLE living on an estate in Gosport will get the chance to learn new skills next week.

Rowner Community Trust and Groundwork Solent are teaming up to teach horticulture and estate management on the estate.

It comes after the trust won funding from the Awards for All and the European Social Fund to pay for the training.

The launch of the project will see a mini makeover day on Friday at the Nimrod Community Centre in Nimrod Drive, Rowner in Gosport from 10am to 2.30pm.

Residents will get a chance to suggest and discuss ideas for improvements to the area over tea and biscuits.

And there will be an opportunity to make hanging baskets and replant large flowerpots.

Alana Gooding, development manager at the trust, said: ‘We are delighted to be able to offer a training opportunity that can benefit people from the estate and improve the environment they live in at the same time.’
