The 2017 Newhaven Community Awards for Young People were presented at the Annual Town Meeting, which took place on the 2nd May at the Hillcrest Community Centre, and was organised by Newhaven Town Council.
Awards were presented to young people who had accomplished significant achievements or made exceptional contributions to the Newhaven community. In addition to the award ceremony, several local organisations spoke about the work they did within Newhaven. Sophie Lewis, Young Mayor of Newhaven and UTC@harbourside student also attended the presentations.
Seb Zuddas, also a student at the UTC@harbourside, was awarded the overall Newhaven Community Award for Young People. Seb was the first student to volunteer when the UTC was challenged to build something from nothing, and he did this by working with other students as a single team, identifying initiatives and delivering them. He managed this with no funding and little resources and now has eleven other UTC students on board with him to deliver the current three projects he is helping to run.
