Some of Havering’s top young sporting talent were honoured by the Talented 30 scheme run by the Council and Havering College of Further Education recently.

Over 260 applications were received this year, with the judges ‘overwhelmed’ by the amount of talent in the borough.

“Each and every one of you should be proud of your skills and I encourage you to keep working at and enjoying your particular talents.

“I hope the financial reward will help to further your skills.”
