Endorsement

The morning was a great success, thanks to Trish and businesses. Additionally the event could not and would not be able to go ahead without the volunteers; the experience for the students is enormous. Probably over 90 percent of students will not have been interviewed. The experience Trish was able to impart to the students; allows the students to adapt accordingly for their post 16 option choices. Thank you for your support. Kind regards Trudy Reilly

Endorsement

Finding myself in the unfortunate situation of having to move house 3 times in 18 months, I was totally surprised and pleased to receive an amazing bouquet of flowers from Barnes Construction for my latest ( and hopefully last) house move. As I have only been employed by Barnes since May 2014, the company has escaped the previous two house moves, much to their relief I'm sure! It is a lovely gesture which is greatly appreciated when coping with such a stressful and arduous task.
