College Ambassador Scoops Crewe Youth Town Council Award

A South Cheshire College student has scooped a Crewe Town Council award for giving students a voice in the local community.

Nathan Armstrong won the Youth Award at Crewe Town Council’s annual awards event after pioneering the ‘Crewe Youth Voice’ at college.

As Chair of the committee, Nathan has provided an open forum for students to discuss their likes and dislikes about Crewe and share their views directly with Crewe Youth Town Council. 

The committee meet on a regular basis to raise issues about what they like and want to improve in the local area.

Nathan joined three other winners who were presented with awards by Mayor of Crewe, Councillor Dennis Straine-Francis, at the Civic Reception on Friday 26th February.

Award winners and their families, councillors and local dignitaries attended the event at the Ibis Hotel in Crewe, which started with a three course meal and was followed by an awards ceremony.

Nathan, from Crewe, said: “I’m really pleased and proud to have won the Crewe Youth Award at this event. 

“It was a real honour going up to receive the award for the work that I’ve done in Crewe – an area that I’m proud of.

“I look forward to continuing to give young people a ‘voice’ in the area and am already looking forward to the future.

Cllr Dennis Straine-Francis said: “The work that Nathan has done this year has been brilliant and we are very grateful for him feeding back the views of people in his age group to Crewe Town Council.

“It’s really important for young people to have a say in what happens in Crewe – they are our future.

“We need youngsters to enjoy themselves but also we want them to be a part of what happens in the area and to remember that they are a big part of our future.”

South Cheshire College Student Council Co-ordinator John Leese added: “Nathan deserved to win this award for the hours that he’s given to the College and Crewe. 

“He also gives up his time to support the Student Council at South Cheshire College and helps out with numerous college events as an ambassador.”
