A Minster teenager has been presented with £50 worth of sports vouchers, after giving her views on sport in Thanet.

13-year old Susan King couldn't believe her luck when Colin Rouse from the council's Sport Matters team presented her with the vouchers at Sport 4 NRG bowling.

Susan's name was picked out of a hat, filled with the names of all the young people who completed a Sport Matters Summer Survey. It aimed to improve communication between the team and young people and the results have already led to a new weekly street dance session for girls being set up by Sport 4 NRG at Hartsdown Leisure Centre.

Susan regularly attends Sport 4 NRG sessions, a year after first joining, and attends with her two sisters and younger brother. Sport 4 NRG is a free sports activity programme for young people in Thanet, aiming to keep them active, occupied, off the streets and out of trouble.

Colin Rouse said: "Much of the work we do is targeted at Thanet's young people and so it's vital that we find out what sports they want to see us putting on. We've already listened to what they've said and introduced sessions that they wanted to take part in. The results of the survey were really useful and very encouraging, with most young people taking part in some form of sport or physical activity outside of school."
