Duke of Edinburgh Gold Award Holder’s Reception – 4 July

On a very warm evening I attended this prestigious reception in Winchester ā€“ there were 5 recipients from the Borough of Havant! Whilst they had already received their awards from Her Majesty the Lord Lieutenant of Hampshire presented them with a certificate. I felt very proud that we had five young people from within the Borough in receipt of these.

Due to the crowds on the night I was only able to meet and speak with three of our recipients and say a quick hello to the fourth. I did not manage to speak to the fifth person at all which was a shame. I felt enormous pride none the less. When we left the Great Hall it was such a surprise to find the pavements soaking wet and the rain pouring down.
