A teenager in Towcester has been handed a new digital camera after Mayor Martin Johns chose his image as the winner of the Vision Youth Cafe Photography Exhibition.

The exhibition took place during the Cafe’s end of year celebration and the Mayor chose Chris Hickey’s image of a PCSO sitting down with a teenager over a music mixing deck.

Vision secretary Nick Holder said: “The Mayor chose the picture to win the competition because it showed the positive work of Vision, breaking down perceived barriers between young people and other groups in the community. But he said it was very difficult to pick a winner as all the of the pictures were excellent.”

Mr Holder said celebration marked the end of a 22 week programme of events and was a great success thanks to the work of Youth Participation Worker Steph Collier and Vision volunteers.

Interested groups are invited to the Vision AGM at 6pm on January 9 in Islington Road.
