Trust’s work on show in centre

A GROUP aiming to tackle unemployment, crime, education and housing will raise awareness of its work next week.

The Hartlepool New Deal for Communities Trust will be in the Central Square of the Middleton Grange Shopping Centre on Monday, from 9am-5pm.

Members will answer questions, distribute leaflets and offer shoppers the chance to enter a free prize draw.

The Hartlepool NDC Trust was created to continue the work of the Hartlepool NDC, which will close on March 31.

Shopping centre manager Mark Rycraft said: “It is great to have the Hartlepool NDC Trust in the centre.”

“It is important that shoppers discover how local organisations impact on the regeneration of the area.”
