Business Brunch 2019

Woodlands Meed launched our first ever Business Brunch at the college site on 13th November 2019. This was a wonderful opportunity for local businesses to see just how successful Woodlands Meed students can be and our Woodlands Meed enterprises were proudly on display including Card Making, Upcycling, Publishing and Marketing, and with the Catering and Hospitality Enterprise team serving refreshments it proved to be a wonderful event.

It was a valuable opportunity for the students to learn about the WSCC Learning Disability Team’s Positive and Possible Campaign, hear from Cllr Colin Trumble, watch presentations from YAAN Apprenticeship Team and Café Domenica and to hear from two ex-Woodlands Meed students about life after Woodlands Meed.

Hugo Edwards and Peter McCleery each gave honest, insightful and inspirational speeches about moving on from Woodlands Meed that we just have to share. We are extremely proud of both their achievements and wish them every success in their futures.
