High Sheriff Awards Night
Last Thursday I was invited to the “Youth Against Crime Awards”.
Every year the High Sheriff of Northumberland makes awards in recognition of groups in the Northumberland community who encourage useful and beneficial pursuits for young people, helping them to be upstanding citizens and hopefully avoid criminal activities
Last summer we held a ladies charity day on Tweed tributary the Till at Tiptoe Fishing with Lucy Carroll who is the current High Sheriff of Northumberland. The money raised from this day went into this years awards.
Margaret Ward attended last years fishing day and as a result Harbottle School Community Group submitted an application and were one of approx. 70 groups across Northumberland to receive an award.
The evening was a great success with entertainment from youth band Bad Apples CIC a community interest company aiming to engage young people with a passion for music, dance, the arts to try new skills. Hairy Biker Si King handed out the awards with the High Sheriff. Si is off trout fishing this weekend – and watch this space as he is trying salmon fishing later in the year too.
Thank you to everyone who support our charity ladies days – they do make a difference.
