YOUNGSTERS in Gosport met the mayor to showcase the work they do in the community.

Holly Ure, Summer Grundy, Zoe Garbutt, Sophie Newman, Kirsty Greener and Connor Sheehan are all part of Loud and Proud – a group of 16 to 18-year-olds who help the local community and raise money for charities.

They met Gosport’s mayor, Councillor Chris Carter, at the town hall.

Cllr Carter, said: ‘We all know you can get good and bad in all walks of life, but sadly when it comes to young people, they all seem to be tarred with the same bad brush.

‘I want to highlight the fact that young people do care about others, they do care about their community and whether it’s litter picking, selling tickets or raising funds for charity, they are actively taking part.’
