THE work of offenders who have carried out tasks at Conquest Riding Centre for the Disabled, at Norton Fitzwarren, has been officially recognised.

They have worked on grounds and yard maintenance, mucking out and painting and decorating, all under supervision, as part of their community payback conditions.

Denise Day, community payback team manager with the Avon and Somerset Probation Trust, has presented a plaque to the centre to mark the ongoing work which started last August.

She said: “Offenders who have worked at the centre have been very positive about the project and the support they have been given by staff and volunteers.

“They see this work as hugely rewarding and if direct benefit to then many people who visit the centre.”
