More Feedback from a 'community vehicle' recipient - The Meriton

Carol Bowery Headteacher of The Meriton, wrote, 'The Meriton did not have a minibus which meant we were limited as to how many students we could take out at any one time and the expense of taxis or hiring a minibus was prohibitive.  Working on the vehicle gave the students a sense of ownership and they were very proud of their achievement.

All the vehicles we have restored on the Community Vehicle Programme have been used to enhance peoples' lives and, for us, it is also about putting something back into the community.

The young women have learned new skills and gained a sense of independence.  They know more about mechanics and can challenge garages about prices and problems with their cars if they feel they are re being conned.'
