Awards for Seaton youngsters who have completed 100 hours of service to the community

Seven members of the Seaton Young Leaders in Service initiative have collected Gold Awards.

Sponsored by Seaton and District Lions Club and Seaton’s Voice, the scheme encourages young people to put something back into their local communities.

The Young Leaders in Service initiative is a worldwide signature project by Lions Club International.

Each young person has to complete 100 hours of service to their local community

Certificates were presented at The Gateway, in Seaton Town Hall, by Lions’ South West district governor Marianne Warren in front of an audience of over 60.

Seaton Lion Janine Barradale and Seaton’s Voice director Carol Manley introduced each of the Young Leaders in turn, explaining to the audience what they had achieved in their year of service and how they had all exceeded the 100 hours needed to qualify for the Gold Award.

A special ‘peer group’ award was given to the youngest member of the group, Jenny Weber, in recognition of the outstanding service she had rendered during the year.

The Young Leaders then gave flowers to thank their two sponsors, Carol Manley and Janine Barradale, who had guided them through the year.

Seaton Mayor, Gaynor Sedgwick, said the town had every reason to be proud of the Young Leaders and what they had achieved.
