In conjunction with Avon & Somerset Police, Frome College arranged for Paul Hannaford to deliver his drug awareness talks to all student year groups throughout the day on Thursday 24 January.

Paul is a well-respected speaker who has already spoken to over 50,000 students this year across the UK, and since 2009, he has worked with over 300,000 students. The talks were based on his life story, which provided a real life insight to crime, drugs addiction, alcohol and gang life, knife crime, self-harm and bullying. All students received a valuable message about these topics, and Paul was extremely professional ensuring his talks were appropriate for each year group. We are grateful to the Mendip Police Team in facilitating and supporting these talks. 

Paul said, “I cannot stress enough the importance of talking honestly to children about the catastrophic effects drugs, knife crime and gangs can have on their life, and the lives of those who love them. Every child matters and their future must be a bright one. We need to do all we can to ensure that.”

In addition, Frome Town Council hosted Paul Hannaford in the evening, to deliver his drug awareness talk to parents in the Town Hall. Forty-seven people attended and Frome Town Council live streamed it.  On the night, 248 people viewed the live stream, which is still available on the FTC Facebook page.  By 4.00pm, Paul had over 250 comments from students and parents on his social media, saying how inspirational and powerful the talk was.

Frome Town Council are looking at more workshops and action to tackle drugs in the town. Avon & Somerset Police said how important it was that all incidents involving and relating to drugs were reported and logged.
