Ninety-seven youngsters graduated from the National Citizen Service (NCS), at a prestigious ceremony held at Lynn’s Town Hall.

The NCS programme is a national scheme, delivered locally by the College of West Anglia (CWA), during school holidays throughout the year.

The course, which is backed by the government, is an once-in-a-lifetime opportunity that helps young people build skills for work and life, whilst taking on new challenges and making new friends. Melissa Crofts, 17, was the 1000th member to join the CWA NCS cohort. She is currently studying childcare at the Lynn campus.
