HOW wonderful to read about Andrew Richards, the 18 year- old who saved the life of a man having a heart attack in the town centre.

Not the first time he has helped injured people. He looked so smart and proud in his St John Ambulance uniform, his parents must be bursting with pride.

This young man will go a long way in life. I am sure many others like me wish him well.

It would be good if more followed his excellent example. We only hear about the bad young people and I am sure there are many more hard-working teenagers deserving of mention.

I have many great-grandchildren of whom I am very proud, working hard at university and doing jobs in their breaks. God bless them.
