Hampshire’s High Sheriff Tom Floyd yesterday went to Gosport to meet members of Motiv8.

The charity helps young people to improve their lives and tackles reoffending, anti-social behaviour and getting people back into education or employment.

Mr Floyd was at the charity’s headquarters in Toronto Place and also visited Gosport Community Safety Partnership’s Summer Passport Scheme.
