Fresh Start Graduation

Participants on the Fresh start program attended a graduation ceremony held at the Civic Suite on 30 March. The well attended ceremony which took place in the council chamber was to celebrate the on-going success of Lewisham residents participating in Fresh Start, some of whom have already started their new businesses. Certificates were presented by Steve Nelson, principal director of the South East London Chamber of Commerce who commended the program for its success in helping unemployed Lewisham residents into self employment. Three of the Fresh Start delegates received special ‘Going the Distance’ awards to be spent on their new businesses, the top award was £300 won by Esse Andrews Web Design. Esse was one of the first delegates to join the program in 2009. The graduation was followed by a reception where delegates had the chance to network.
