Court Street will be a little bit brighter thanks to the efforts of three teenagers.

When Sylede’sha Dill, Gershone Tait and Toschella Trott, all M3 Dellwood School graduates, got tired of “reading gossip, swear words, and negative messages on the back of bathroom doors”, they decided to do something about it.

Wanting to make their community a better place, they originally thought aboout painting positive messages on the back of the doors to remind people to be “the best they can be”.

But – after discussions – they decided to bring a message of hope to a wider public and put their messages up on Court Street for passersby to see.
