MEMBERS of Flinders Founders are waiting with bated breath to learn if they have been successful in the East Midlands It’s Your Neighbourhood Awards.

Awards judge Jeff Bates visited the skate park that the youngsters campaigned for and achieved for the village in 2006 and remarked on the effort that the young people had put in to improve their entry over last year.

Group chairman Leah Bristow said: “Flinders Founders is a group for people aged 11 to 19 and our aim is to make Donington a better place for young people.

“The judge was really pleased with us because last year we got dropped down a little bit because of the garden so this year we made sure we did the garden.”

The group will hear how they got on in September when the awards ceremony is held.
