NCS students walk into the dragon’s den

Young people taking part in a national course to help them learn new skills felt the heat when they had to pitch their fundraising ideas in Andover’s very own version of The Dragon’s Den.

The 16 and 17-year-olds on the National Citizen Service (NCS) had to face a daunting panel, which included North West Hampshire MP and former cabinet minister, Sir George Young and Valley Leisure chief executive, Kevin Paterson.


Young carers become swimming stars

Children who spend a lot of their time looking after other people have been the sole and total centre of attention at a special course at Andover Leisure Centre.  The 15 youngsters - all of whom are Andover Young Carers - have been taking part in a scheme to help improve their swimming skills.  At the start of the free six-week course, some of the youngsters had little water confidence and didn’t swim well. But others were total non-swimmers.
