Duncan Hames recently joined fellow school governors, staff and George Ward School pupils to mark the start of building work for Melksham’s new school.
The school has been given the green light for a completely new school building, providing state of the art facilities in a bright and modern learning environment.
Duncan Hames commented “This is excellent news for young people in Melksham and their families. There is no better investment that could be made in the community than into the education of the next generation.”
Duncan has also backed the plans for a new building for the Chippenham campus of Wiltshire College, but has urged that care be taken to work with local residents and ease problems with construction traffic and congestion.
