A reality TV star was present at the opening of a social enterprise for young people with learning difficulties.

Stevenage resident and former Britain’s Got Talent Contestant Gabz Gardner opened the Greenside Studio, based at The Hyde, Stevenage, last Friday.

The studio will provide opportunities for students at Greenside School to sell sweets to the public, learning important work skills.

Greenside headteacher Dave Victor said: “We were so grateful to Gabz for coming down and we’re very pleased with these new facilities.”

Gabz will be in Hitchin tonight (Friday) for the town’s Christmas light switch on.
