Another fantastic Duke of Edinburgh Medway Awards Evening

DofE1

I was privileged to attend the second Duke of Edinburgh (Medway) Awards event at Rochester Cathedral this evening in the company of the Mayor and Mayoress of Medway Cllr Barry Kemp and Mrs Joyce Kemp.

Also present was the Pro Vice-Chancellor for Research at the University of Kent Professor Philippe De Wilde.

There have been such  a record number of our Medway Young People achieving the Award that it once again had to be held on two separate occasions.

It was also a real pleasure to see our young people from Abbey Court School who had overcome their disabilities and achieved both Bronze and Silver Awards, they always receive a warm applause of congratulations from all present.

As always, it was the very best example of our Medway Youth from all walks of life, congratulations to you all.

A big thank you to all of the wonderful volunteers who run the DofE Medway , we are really proud of you all.

Thank you to to the University of Kent and Medway Council for supporting the DofE Medway Awards.

A special Award this evening was given to the first of our Young Leaders, the first in the South East and the Mayor and I are photographed above with them.
