Fleet Young Person Of The Year And Aircraft Flight!

Last year Richard Bennett was named Fleet Young Person of the Year – see here
Fleet resident Richard Bennett was thrilled to have been named Fleet Young Person of the Year 2009, but disappointed that he was unable to carry out part of his prize, the switching on of the Christmas lights at the Fleet Festivities last November, as he was still at university.  However, his brother James proudly stepped up and switched on the lights on his brother’s behalf. Richard also won a £100 Outdoor Adventure voucher, an engraved glass trophy and a certificate recording his award.

Richard writes:
I just wanted to thank Colin Gray, Chairman of Fleet Pond Society, once again for nominating me as Fleet Young Person of the Year for 2009. I used the Outdoor Adventure voucher to take a light aircraft flight. Originally I was going to do it in June, but there was bad weather on each day that it was arranged for, and so I did it today (7 September 2010) instead.

I flew around Christchurch in Dorset and a couple of photos are attached.

I’d also like to thank the Fleet Festivities Partnership for organising the award, and for Hart District Council Community and Partnerships, and Hart Youth Partnership for fundng the scheme – it’s much appreciated.
