I moved on to the 'Showcase and Celebration Event : Social Enterprise - the Journey so Far' at Weetwood Hall...

It was brilliant to see the work that Mike Cooper, Christine Marsden and colleagues are nurturing and supporting. Their passion, commitment, energy and hard work have created something really special which was showcased by young people from Bramley St Peter's CE Primary School who talked about their 'Events Management Company', by Woodlands Primary School who talked about their 'Community Newspaper', by Cockburn Arts College who talked about their 'Glassroom' and by Prince Henry's Grammar School who talked about their 'Fair Trade and Social Enterprise' work. These amazing young people were wonderful ambassadors and advocates for their schools and from what I saw the future of Leeds as a centre of enterprise and innovation is very safe in their capable and creative hands.
