Since September 2019, EDSV has been helped by Cllr Lenny Brandon, leader of Hatfield Town Council, and his deputy Cllr Caron Juggins by providing them a facility.
Cllr Brandon said, "After meeting Billy for first time I was struck by his infectious enthusiasm, and I am glad HTC were able to offer EDSV our facility at Roe Hill.
"They have brought the venue to life during the week, and the feedback from other users has only been positive. I visit two to three times a week and am continually impressed not only by the professionalism of the operation but by the attitude and dedication of all EDSV's students they really are a credit and an inspiration."
