Berwick MP Anne-Marie Trevelyan met some of the young people taking part in this year’s National Citizen Service (NCS) in Alnwick.

The scheme, for 15 to 17-year-olds, involves challenges, voluntary work and the building of skills to prepare young people for adult life. Mrs Trevelyan visited the local group at Alnwick Community Centre and met youngsters participating in their social action week.

The group was led by Andrew Elliott and Jane McPhail, youth participation workers from Northumberland Youth Service.

Anne-Marie said: “It was fantastic to meet some really motivated young people who are learning so much about teamwork, leadership and their own unique skills. They all have bright futures ahead and I wish them well in their plans for future careers.”
