Medway Young People shine at the Duke of Edinburgh Medway Awards

A fantastic evening at Rochester Cathedral on Wednesday when some 250 young people received the Bronze , Silver and Gold Awards.

I was privileged to present the Awards and also to deliver the closing address.

It was a particular honour for me as one of the Silver Award recipients was my Grandson Daniel.

The Duke of Edinburgh Award scheme is run by enthusiastic volunteers of all ages and I thank them for the fantastic work that they do on behalf of the young people of Medway.

As I said in my address, the young people of Medway are a credit to their Families, Friends and themselves in particular and Medway in general.

We are extremely proud of them.

Because of the record number of participants this year, some 549, there will be a second Award Ceremony next month.
