In the article below it mentions the National Citizens Service at Waterside Lodge. After their residential week at Waterside Lodge they had to plan and complete a community project and because they had enjoyed the week with us so much they wanted to help Waterside as part of the project. We set them the task of clearing the campsite on the island and making it useable. They got stuck in and completed the task brilliantly.
