A school’s coffee van enterprise and had an amazing makeover.

Hector was created by the former head of Clevedon School’s sixth form, Jeremy Newall, who purchased the van from a farmer in France while at the school.

It has since been used by students to serve coffee around the community and at school events.

Jeremy passed away almost two years ago in Christmas 2016 and his van is part of his legacy at the school.

The makeover was supported by Clevedon’s Teatro Lounge and saw it restored to his original grey by Redhill Autobodies.

Headteacher Jim Smith said: “Hector is a wonderful legacy to have. Jeremy was a wonderful man and an inspiration to so many people.

“Hector has been a fantastic success and now it looks even better. I must express my gratitude to both Teatro Lounge and Redhill Autobodies without whom Hector would not be looking so resplendent.”
