Media and Film student, Hannah Seager, has been named the first ever winner of the Young Civic Society volunteer award.
The Marsh Civic Awards are awarded annually to recognise an “outstanding contribution to the civic movement” by an individual and a group. The awards are supported by the Marsh Christian Trust and this year, a new award was created to recognise the outstanding contribution made by a younger person to the civic movement.
Hannah commented, “I was approached by my tutor, Joe Evans, who asked if I was able to produce a video for the Altrincham and Bowden Civic Society, as I live in that area. I made a video to show the conservation areas and how important it was to protect them. I was really surprised to be nominated for an award as I volunteered solely for the work experience, but I was even more surprised to win for ‘young person contribution’. I understand more now about how important it is to look after listed buildings, which make an area what it is.”
