Young people from Marsh Farm and surrounding areas were presented with awards at a ceremony held on 10 September 2014 by Marsh Farm Futures, at Futures House, Marsh Farm, in recognition of their achievements in gaining qualifications in DJ Skills, music and video production.
Marsh Farm Futures secured ‘Awards for All’ lottery funding for Marsh Farm Music Project for young people to develop skills in music and film production. Ishaq Kazi, Programme Manager said:  “It’s great to see a project develop from inception to completion. We are grateful to our funders The Big Lottery, and our partners Jamrock Media for delivering a great project.”
At the ceremony, chaired by Cllr Roy Davis, some of the young people accompanied by their proud parents were presented with AQA awards (part of the Unit Award Scheme (UAS), a 'can do' accreditation scheme for recognising learning and success)  and guests watched a short film that the young people had put together to show the skills they had learnt in film production.
Speaking at the event, Co-ordinator, Marsh Farm Futures Youth and Community Involvement Manager, Cathy McShane said:” The efforts of these young people can be seen in the work and level of commitment that they showed in completing the project. They should all be extremely proud of their achievements.”
The Chairman of Marsh Farm Futures, Cllr Roy Davis said:” It is marvellous to see all the work that these young people have done. The short film they made was of such a high standard as was the music they produced. Marsh Farm Futures are committed to helping young people from Marsh Farm to achieve their dreams and we will continue to seek further resources to fund such projects. Well done to all.”
