A visit from The High Sheriff

On 5 August we were delighted to receive a visit from the newly appointed High Sheriff of Bristol Rosalind Kennedy and her husband Cameron. They met all the staff and were given a tour of our workshops and classrooms and an in depth insight into the work we do here at Wheels. They were able to observe and talk to our group of students from BANES Air Cadets and Southside Youth Club who have returned to complete one of our Community Vehicle Programmes during the Summer Term.

We received a lovely letter of thanks from Rosalind, where she commented on how much she enjoyed meeting the staff and pupils and was very impressed by the positive and friendly atmosphere.
