Trowbridge Future has marked the end of a year of young people coming together at its youth sessions across the town, with a special Christmas award ceremony at its Seymour Community Hub. Over 30 young people attended the event, with eighteen awards celebrating their achievements, including creativity, kindness, bravery and friendship. A list of light-hearted categories also ensured there were plenty of laughs.

“The Trowbridge Future awards are all about telling our young people how much we value them, and appreciate what they contribute each week,” says Meg Aubrey, Chief Executive.

The charity’s Young Person of the Year Award was given to Riley Humm. Trowbridge Future currently runs four weekly youth sessions and detached youth work in Longfield, Seymour and Studley Green and Stallards Skate Park, led by professional youth workers. The youth sessions are open to all children and young people from year 4 upwards, with a range of activities and opportunities for support.
