Award-winning Redbridge residents congratulated by mayor and councillors
Members congratulated award-winning Redbridge residents and workers for recent accolades.
The mayor, Cllr Muhammed Javed, presented two students with their Rick Grice Spirit of the Games Award for their involvement in the London Youth Games.
CJ White, of Caterham High School, Caterham Avenue and Sophie Hammond, of Beal High School, Woodford Bridge Road, both 17, represented Redbridge at the youth games in indoor and outdoor rowing.
They are now instructors and coach and manage the borough team, helping them to five medals in the competition earlier this year.
