Mrs Midgley meets the Prime Minister!

newsletter_130Mrs Midgley – a medical team member at HOHS – attended a meeting with the Prime Minister on Monday when he came to Norwich to meet a small group of entrepreneurs to find out about their experiences on the government’s business start-up loan scheme, which Mrs Midgley has accessed.

“We sat round a table – he asked lots of questions and was interested in finding out about how the scheme had worked for us,” said Mrs Midgely, who has set up her own first aid training business with the help of the scheme.

The meeting was held at Rackheath at the premises of a small jewellery-making business which had also benefited from the start-up loan scheme.

HOHS benefits from Mrs Midgley’s expertise as she trains our staff first aiders and is also set to offer our senior girls a certificated course which will be a useful addition to their CVs.
