Wishaw restorative justice scheme wins praise
A Wishaw restorative justice project has received an accolade at the first Scottish Community Service Awards held recently in Glasgow.
The market garden project, which is based on farmland in Netherton, was commended in the skills building category.
It has been running for four years and was the brainchild of community service works supervisor Bobby Campbell.
It teaches offenders skills including team work, hard landscaping, working machinery and learning all aspects of growing fruit and vegetables, as well as good life-changing skills.
