Transforming Wiltshire College

I have been strongly supporting a funding application from Wiltshire College to transform Chippenham’s Lackham campus. It was great, therefore, to see the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government, Sajid Javid, visit Chippenham last week to announce that Wiltshire College has indeed secured more than £20 million funding as part of an overall £28.1 million investment for key projects in the area.

These funding bids are very hard to achieve, so congratulations to all those involved for their hard work. It will be of huge benefit to our community and the next generation.
