Are you a young champion?
Dart Harbour seeks entries for its Young Champion Awards
2011 – you could have what it takes!
The 2011 Dart Harbour Young Champion Awards are now
accepting entries – and the award’s organisers are looking
forward to being inspired by the activities of the young
people around the River Dart.
The awards, which are in their second year, reward those who
go out of their way to use, celebrate or promote the River
Dart – one of Britain’s most beautiful and most loved
waterways. It is open to anyone of the right age who lives
within 10 miles of the River Dart. There are three
age-groups in the awards: 8-11 years, which is an award for
school classes or clubs to undertake, 12-16 years which is
for individuals with teacher or adult guidance, and 16-21
years, which is for individuals.
The aim is to celebrate the River Dart in some way - and the
beauty of the competition is that entrants can let their
imagination run wild. Entrants could document the
wildlife of the river, or canoe down it for charity, or
write poetry about it, or race on it, or find new ways to
cross it - the possibilities are endless.
Sue Pudduck, part of the Dart
Harbour Board and one of the award’s organisers said she was
really excited to see what the young people of the Dart
Valley and beyond could achieve. ‘The young people in
this area are dynamic and inventive,’ she said. ‘We really
look forward to seeing what entries come in. Obviously
sports are going to be a big part of it, but we are also
interested in arts-based submissions, environmental
submissions and even community projects too.’ For more

Many of you will
remember Tony Pike our lead professional photographer
who died suddenly in November last year; his beautiful

Memorial Service for him in St Saviour's Church on
