On Thursday, November 11 last week I went to the Young Peoples' Achievements and Awards event at the town hall. It was a really positive evening and I was genuinely entertained by the singing and music -- Ground Roots from Sun Street in particular -- and moved by young people reading poems and hearing about the young carers group.
I don't know if they have sent in a press release yet, but I really hope they get some prominent -- front-page? -- and good coverage of this event -- as young people are often unfairly slagged off in the national media. I have e-mailed the Editors of the local papers about this.
