Did you know that MShed has an archive of recordings about YES.
These were made in 2014 as part of a project funded by Heritage Lottery.
YES Trustees, past and present students, staff and volunteers were interviewed.

Lisanne wrote about the Grand Opening of YES in Hide Market:
On the 9th September YES had their opening day party.
They were celebrating the move to Old Market in the centre of Bristol.
The new building is spacious and nice.
Chris and Jo organised a party and Ruth made a delicious madeira cake.
A there was a lot of people and some special guests were invited.
The Lord Mayor shook our hands. Tony Robinson who is the patron of YES, cut the ribbon to open the door for the first time. He made a speech which was very funny.
Everyone was very happy and we all had a wonderful time.
and we have unpacked 68 boxes!
On Monday it was the end of another successful Dyslexic Support course. It’s always sad when these courses come to an end but we’re sure the students will go on to do all sorts of exciting things.
Thursday evening students hard at work with a map of the Old Market area. We will be moving there soon!
Here’s Mark on his way to completing the 10K for YES funds. He was in a hurry to get back in time for the Bristol City game! Well done and thanks Mark.
