Darren said: “It was our eighth annual presentation and it’s been one of my best years to date.

“It’s been so successful for so many members from a development point of view that it would have been impossible and unfair to pick any overall winners, so everyone got a very personal award to treasure.”

The awards were presented by the school’s first ever member Dylan Martin from Posh Under 14s.
