Good News Story from the BACH South West Region

Students from Weston College were treated to a behind the scenes visit to the BBC TV programme DIY SOS.  20 students from a variety of construction courses were able to visit a live location site and watch the DIY SOS team of volunteers undertake the restoration of a family home. The students had the chance to meet the DIY SOS crew who spoke so positively about the construction industry and the opportunities it creates.

Students were surprised to hear that the DIY SOS crew still work in the construction Industry when not on set, Mark Millar, who presents, and is the build manager, runs his own construction business in Bristol when not filming.

Students also had a Q&A slot with TV presenter Nick Knowles who proved to be a great advocate for the construction industry, the characters that work within the industry and the impact it has on all of our lives. Nick also challenged colleges to get involved with their own voluntary work within their communities as a regular part of study programmes, highlighting the value to recipients but also to the students who would get a chance to really make a difference.

Students left the visit buoyed with enthusiasm for construction and all pledged to get involved with a voluntary project in 2019-20
