Proud of our Young People

At a time when so many negative things are being said about the young people in our nation (although I note that less than 25% of those in trouble for rioting are under 18), I thought you'd like to see something positive.

Many of you will know that our youngsters have just got back from Rocknations in Bradford, where by all accounts they had an amazing time (you can see some highlights here). When they go up there they stay in a hotel, and I must admit that a part of me wonders quite what goes on with dozens of very excited youngsters in that sort of environment. Well after this years stay this feedback was sent from the hotel manager to Lorraine Wade, who organised the hotel and was with the young people:


Good Afternoon Lorraine


I hope you are well, I just wanted to send you a quick email and thank you for choosing the Midland Hotel again this year. Michela and Hannah told me what a lovely group you had and they were not wrong at all, right from the beginning to the end the Kids were very polite, well mannered and are a credit to you, their parents and the ALCC.


(The head housekeeper has informed me that the bedrooms were not damaged in any way).


If I can be of service to you in anyway please do not hesitate to contact me, and hopefully we can look forward to being of service to you next year.

I love getting that sort of feedback! It makes me very proud of our youngsters, and all of the team who went up there to support and look after them. I hope it makes you proud too.

Simon.
