Griffin handed out gongs during the unveiling of a special artwork of two figures talking that now stands outside the Waterside Theatre at Bow School in Twelvetrees Crescent.
Assistant headteacher, Jim Morris, said: “The project has provided a valuable experience for all to break down the barries that exist between people of different ages, upbringings and ethnic backgrounds.”
The sculpture was created by the Geezers Club, school, local men’s health network and artists Michelle Reader and Neil Irons.
