EXTRAORDINARY achievements by young people in Uttlesford were celebrated at an award ceremony on Friday.

Ten students from Mountfitchet Maths and Computing College completed the Uttlesford Respect Project, which involved activities

at Stubbers Adventure Centre

in South Ockendon and the

Lake District.

The project was run by the Essex Association of Boys' Clubs with the full support of Essex Police.

Chief Insp Graham Stubbs, Uttlesford's police commander, said: "Helping, and engaging with, young people in Uttlesford are amongst my top priorities.

"Young people are important part of our communities and this excellent initiative continues to see fantastic results."

The project was an opportunity for the teenagers involved to learn a new skill, or achieve something they might have thought they were unable to.

This could have been climbing a mountain or overcoming a fear of heights. Completing challenges boosted participants' self-confidence, problem-solving skills and patience levels.
