A TEAM from YMCA Wirral has been honoured in this year's Youth Federation Annual Awards.

George Fletcher took the award for Inspirational Youth worker; Sean Watson was crowned adult community champion.

Education in Youth Work Awards went to chief executive Nigel Hughes, Sean Watson and George Fletcher for their Community Boats Programme.

The newly re-established youth team was also a Runners Up in the Regional Youth club's 'Positive for Youth Award'.

Chief executive Nigel Hughes said: "I cannot praise our two stars – Sean Watson,  Youth Team Leader and George Fletcher.

"I do not exaggerate when I say how proud I felt sat in that huge room full of established and well respected youth clubs and youth professionals, to have the two stars of the evening sat on the YMCA table”.
