Merchants' Academy students receive a presentation from Andre of Campus Skatepark

On 31 January our students from Merchants' Academy had a presentation from Andre Seidel from Campus Skatepark which is currently based in Winterbourne (www.campus-skatepark.co.uk).

He gave a really interesting talk, and the students were p...articularly excited at his announcement that they are moving from their site in Winterbourne to a new, purpose built centre in the old Bishopsworth Swimming Pool which is barely half a mile away from their school.

He explained that they need a van to move into their new premises and to be able to offer a mobile resource to other groups in the vicinity who may be unable to access the new site.

The students agreed to work on a Ford Transit Long Wheel Base Van to gift to Skatepark.after they have carried out a full service, renovation and sucessfully got it through its MOT. The handover of the vehicle is scheduled for Tuesday 24 March.

The van had been donated to The Wheels Project by Avon and Somerset Constabulary.

This group had completed our Karts and BSKC Prep courses in Term 2 and transferring to our CV Programme this term. These elements were funded by the Society of Merchant Venturers, Bristol.

Their Community Vehicle (CV) Programme during Terms 3 and 4 is being sponsored by the Big Lottery Reaching Communities Fund.
