Attended another Youth Engagement Scheme graduation this time at Walton Fire Station for 9 young people who had successfully completed the week’s programme. It is such a brilliant scheme for giving the participants confidence and social and team building skills. It was a pleasure to see their smiling faces as they each received a certificate. They were well supported by very proud families. Thank you to the committed Fire Officers who are the instructors and in particular to Commander Kevin Noble. He has completed 30 year as a Fire Officer but has also been a stalwart of YES from the beginning in 2004 and spoke so movingly about the benefits that he has seen over the years of the scheme for the young people. The High Sheriff Youth Awards is proud to help fund YES.
