TODAY we start the countdown to the Examiner Community Awards at the Galpharm Stadium on May 31. And we open with a cracking category - our Young Personality award . Over the next 13 editions of your Examiner we will profile each of the categories, bringing you the great stories behind the people and organisations who have made the shortlist.
At One 17 Design we are always seeking ways to help local young people succeed so we are delighted to sponsor the Examiner Young Personality Award.
As an award-winning architectural practice that has decided to remain in Huddersfield – we have been in Kirklees since 1960 – we also welcome this celebration of our local area.
One 17 Design is the umbrella title for a group of companies providing a range of services to clients in construction, design and education. We believe that good design improves the quality of life, enhances performance and ensures the best use of resources.
We also firmly believe in supporting our local community, particularly helping and encouraging young people.
The One 17 Design Charitable Trust, launched in December 2010, enables us to contribute to local projects on a regular basis and we have become involved with many wonderful organisations and amazing young people as a result.
WILLIAM Mullin is a young lad who certainly knows a thing or two about sheep.
At just four years old he can recognise and pick out an individual sheep from a flock of several dozen.
He also helps father Daniel with the lambing, hand-rearing, handling and herding on the 100-acre Huck Hill Farm at Marsden.
The first thing he does when he wakes up in the morning is look out of the window to see which sheep are in which fields.
A pupil at Marsden Infant and Nursery School, William can’t wait to get home every day to spend time on the farm with the animals.
