YOUNG members of a Brightlingsea youth club were handed special awards marking their contributions to the community.
The 4Youth members received Jack Petchey awards as part of a national scheme recognising the positive actions of youngsters across the country.
Club spokesman Adrian Simcock said: “We had several winners, and they got their awards for a variety of things, but they all made a difference to their community.
“They consistently do things to earn this reward and we are proud of their achievements.
“It is always great to see youngsters work hard to make a difference.”
As well as picking up a certificate marking their achievements, each winner is given a small cash prize to go back into their communities.
The 4Youth members all chose for the cash to go into the club.
