THE achievements of young people from across North Somerset were recognised at a special ceremony.
More than 300 youngsters were presented with certificates of achievement at the North Somerset Youth Service Awards held at the Winter Gardens in Weston.
This was the fifth annual event to celebrate young people’s learning, while involved in youth clubs and youth projects across the district.
The awards were given for achievements in a variety of activities ranging from volunteering in the community and awareness training to music, art and dance activities.
The youth service also recognised the partnerships with management committees, agencies and volunteers in the communities.
The event, to which all recipients of an award were invited, provided a free buffet for the young people and their guests along with live entertainment.
