A NEW Hereford school is being given a revamp, with help from Hereford’s chicken factory, run by Avara Foods.

Trinity House, in Moor Farm, was once used as a nursery, but independent school for children with mental health diagnoses, G.E.M, will now take it on.

Its pupils include those with autism, ADHD (attention deficit hyperactivity disorder), ADD (attention deficit disorder), and anxiety with trauma related diagnoses.

The school plans to hold 30 children, which is 10 per cent of those diagnosed in Herefordshire.

The grounds, including the car park, need developing.

This will be taken on by the firm behind the Hereford chicken factory in Red Barn Drive, and one of the UK’s largest food businesses, Avara Foods.

The company, which has various factories around the county, has agreed to help with the renovation of the garden, helping create a multipurpose space; with a play area, an area for growing food and a space for students to relax.


Hereford site manager Marcus Billig said: “After meeting the G.E.M team and seeing what they’re trying to achieve, we were delighted to pitch in and lend our support

“We’re committed to being a positive and proactive partner and neighbour in the community, supporting important local causes.

“Clearly, the opportunities G.E.M provide will make a real difference to the lives of students in the county and we’re glad to be playing our part.”
