I had some lovely conversations with students yesterday, they are a credit to themselves and to your team. Please pass on my thanks and appreciation." - Jenny Milsom, Hotelier

We have been fortunate enough to secure the employment of a number of their former hospitality pupils, these individuals have proven to be some of the hardest working, dedicated and professional members of our team. In addition we have worked with West Suffolk College in support of their work experience scheme as well as taking part in open day events such as their careers day, on each occasion it has been a pleasure to meet the students, all of whom have been a credit to their lecturers and the College as a whole. As a business we are happy to develop this relationship further and will support the College as much as is reasonably practicable." - Christopher Abrey, HR Manager, Bedford Lodge Hotel
