Congratulations Juniper Walsall

Last year I was proud to be asked alongside Bryan Griffin to support Juniper training providers in Walsall by delivering poetry/English workshops for some of their students.

So earlier this week it was great to attend the Juniper Star Awards, where they celebrated and rewarded those pupils who not only passed recent exams but also went above and beyond during their time with Juniper.

Here’s a couple of pictures of Bryan and I awarding the students with their certificates and trophies – pictures courtesy of Juniper.

I look forward to carrying out more workshops with Juniper this year and i wish them and their students continued success with all they do.
