A Hereford school has recognised its local pub in their annual business awards event.
The Kings Fee received a gold award for ‘business of the year’ from the nearby Barrs Court Special School and College.
The framed certifi cate is in recognition for The Kings Fee’s role in the community and especially for their support in the school’s hospitality course.
Dozens of hospitality students from Barrs Court have gained hands on experience, as part of their studies, in a work experience programme at the pub.
The students, all aged between 16-18 years old, have varying degrees of learning disabilities.
Robbie Bates, pub manager at The Kings Fee, said: “We received a letter from the school to tell us about the award and it came as a complete suprise."
