The Orchard Theatre, Dartford hosted the 2011 Sevenoaks, Dartford and Gravesham Try Angle Awards. The ceremony recognises young people’s achievements in various fields such as dance, sport, music and volunteer help.

Each nominee receives a Try Angle certificate to cement their accomplishment and the winner of each category wins an award trophy. Avtar Sandhu MBE was there on the evening to help present some awards to the children who had gone out of their way to help another or achieved highly in an aspect of interest.

The evening celebrates what young people do right within the community and Avtar helped support the evening by making a financial donation out of his members grant to make the evening more special. Other councillors included Ann Allen, Mike Snelling and Richard Parry also presenting awards.

All finalists are put through to the Kent County Council Spirit of Try Angle Awards, which this year will be held at Ashford International Hotel where the county as a whole can recognise their achievements. Avtar will also be attending these awards on the 25th September in hope of recognising what young people in Kent can achieve.
