Royal award for young­sters

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - News -

COM­MU­NITY-spir­ited young peo­ple were handed Duke of Ed­in­burgh cer­tifi­cates to mark their achieve­ments.

Mayor of Peter­bor­ough councillor Keith Sharp pre­sented around 20 Jack Hunt School pupils with bronze and sil­ver cer­tifi­cates at a cer­e­mony at Peter­borogh Town Hall.

Cllr Sharp said the young­sters should be proud of their ef­forts, which in­volve com­plet­ing cul­tural and ad­ven­ture ac­tiv­i­ties, to se­cure the awards.

He said: “The award scheme helps get the com­mu­nity sprit back into peo­ple. It’s some­thing we had lost but the Duke of Ed­in­burgh awards has helped bring this back.

“They have shown not only that they have helped them­selves, but also their com­mit­ment to the com­mu­nity.”
