All together there were over 133 individuals from the Torridge District that were nominated to the CATS committee and Thursday evening saw the 65 pupils from Great Torrington School have the opportunity to celebrate.

We are sure that there are many more youngsters deserving of such credit, that have gone unnoticed up to now, hopefully the CATS project can go from strength to strength and ensure that members of the community are recognised for their efforts.  

If you know of someone that deserves the recognition please let Mrs Leonard know by contacting her on 01805 623 531 ext. 231.
