AN exhibition of schoolchildren's plans, which could influence real-life development in Ramsey, takes place on Saturday.

Over 600 young people from Abbey College have been involved in a project researching a zero carbon regeneration scheme for their home town.

The pupils will invite the general public to comment on the scheme at a display at the George Hotel in Ramsey High Street.

The plans could affect the scheme known as the Northern Gateway development in Ramsey, due to include a new branch of Tesco and the town's long-awaited community centre, as well as more homes.

INFORMATION: The RED Club exhibition will be at the George Hotel in Ramsey from 10am to noon on Saturday. Entry is free.
