Bexley's looked after children celebrate achievements
BEXLEY'S looked after children and young people have been recognised at a special awards ceremony.
The annual event is an opportunity for the council to reward all the effort the youngsters put into achieving their 'personal best' both in and out of school during the past year.
More than 80 children were nominated for special awards at the Marriott Hotel in Bexleyheath.
Mayor of Bexley Councillor Alan Downing and Mayoress Councillor Ross Downing presented all those nominated with certificates and high street vouchers.
Winners also received a photo of themselves with the Mayor and Olympic weightlifter Zoe Smith.
Cabinet member for children's services and community safety, Councillor Katie Perrior said: "As a council we are corporate parents to these young people and - as any parent would be - I am extremely proud of the work they put in and all that they have achieved throughout the year."
