Corrie star hosts county ‘Oscars’

CORONATION Street star Alan Halsall who plays mechanic Tyrone Dobbs in the TV soap is set to share the stage with Derbyshire’s Young Achievers.

This year Young Achievers and their guests will get the chance to chat to Alan who will also present them with their awards on stage in the glitzy Oscar-style ceremony.

The annual awards, run by Derbyshire County Council, recognise extraordinary children and young people in the county for bravery in fighting an illness, kindness in helping others, commitment to improving their school, community or local environment and sporting, musical, artistic or academic success.

Derbyshire County Council will host a special ceremony to recognise their achievements on December 9.
