The Grand Opening of the Independent Living Houses.
We were very pleased to welcome Mr Paul Jacobs, Service Director Education and Skills for Bristol City Council. He joined us for tea and cake in one of the houses, hosted by five of our older boys, Dan Blackmer, Josh Kitchen, Louis Prewett, Brandon-Lee Weston and Andre Grant.
Mr Jacobs was very impressed with the modern, quality facilities, and resources in each of the houses and complimented Paul Gilson, Sandra Edwards and Chris Rawlings from the Care Team for all their hard work.
Paul Jacobs cut a red ribbon which was across the houses to officially open them and was sure many students would benefit from having the experience of living in them. He commented that this was a ‘unique resource’ for Bristol.
