Congratulations to student Caroline Hodgkiss who won the Young Volunteer of the Year award at last night’s East Hampshire Volunteer Awards Evening. Caroline was nominated for showing great positivity and for overcoming numerous personal obstacles, but she has still shown the strength of character to be a young carer and found the time to promote volunteering to other young people.

Music student Scottie Thompson was recently awarded the Winchester Young Arts Music Prize 2018 for Original Jazz Composition which was presented by The Arts Society Winchester as part of the Hampshire New Music event at the Guildhall in Winchester early in November.

Music student Nathan Hough has organised a Variety Concert which will take place in the Martin Read Hall on Monday 26th November at 7:30pm. The concert will cover a wide range of genres of music so there is something for everyone!
