YOUNG people have been getting creative with the help of the armed forces.

More than 100 youngsters from Fareham, Gosport, East Hampshire and Rushmoor created animated films with members of the services.

The initiative was funded by the Ministry of Defence Community Covenant Grant Scheme. As part of the project, groups visited museums and sites including HMS Collingwood, HMS Bristol, Bordon Garrison, and the Gurkha Museum.

Councillor Keith Mans, in charge of children’s services, said: ‘Many of the young people are from military families so this is a topic close to their hearts.’
