The representatives of the Group were presented with a certificate of commendation by Lancashire’s High Sheriff, Peter Robinson, and Assistant Chief Constable Wendy Walker.

The teacher who helps organise the Group’s activities, David Archer(da@brgs.org.uk), said: “The students enjoyed their day out and came back inspired by the descriptions of the work of the other groups and individuals who had been nominated for the awards. It is a pleasure to work with such enthusiastic, thoughtful and dedicated young people.”
