Dawn French helps launch new youth drug and alcohol centre in Plymouth
ACTRESS Dawn French, Judge William Taylor and Lord Mayor Cllr Michael Wright were the guests of honour as a new facility for young people was officially opened in Plymouth.
Registered charity Hamoaze House provides a day service for people with drug and alcohol problems, but wanted to cater for adults and young people separately.
It already owns Hamoaze House at Mount Wise, and now it has leased Seymour House next door from the city council.
Chief executive Mark Bignell said the charity would offer an alternative school for 16 young people who had been failed by the mainstream educational system.

They will attend daily and be able to gain academic and vocational qualifications.
Seymour House will also offer support programmes for young people on a reduced timetable at school or who are at risk of exclusion, the aim being to help them back into full-time mainstream education.
Out of term-time, it will run a holiday scheme for local children and respite breaks for disabled young people through the Disability Service.
Dawn French's late mother, Roma was the founder of Hamoaze House, while Judge Taylor, who made a speech, is chairman of its board of trustees.
