Cllr Laval with finalist Kirsty HoldenEveryone was a winner at the Citygate and Roche Young People of the Year in 'Herts West' held at County Hall, Hertford, this month (Friday 15 May).

Youngsters from the western half of Hertfordshire competed in the contest, which was set up to give young people a fairer image.

Four finalists, which included King Langley pupil Ross Hudson, triumphed spectacularly as they won £1,500 to share with the community. But the other eight finalists were each given £50 as the sponsors decided Herts young people had such big hearts none should leave empty-handed.
