The Queens Award for Services in the Community

Young people from Knowle West were delighted to accept the Queens Award for Services in the Community on behalf of the Knowle West Media Centre.

They were presented the award by H.M Lord Lieutenant at the centreís celebratory Big British Tea Party at Novers Park Community Centre, Thursday September 14th 2006.

Over 200 local people turned up to share food and music that represents Britainís cultural diversity, from Greek dolmades to Indian nibbles, all set to a backdrop of mellow harp music.

KWMC was the only organisation in Bristol to receive the award this year. The young people described how being involved in projects at the media centre had changed their lives.

Davina Froom talked of her increased confidence, and others described how they were going on to colleges and university.

KWMC is currently involved in many design, moving image and photography projects, including nationally screened short films, the Knowle West website and issues forum (, the Knowle West Newsletter, Nlarge photography group and Mouth of the South - a young peopleís newsletter.
