Tribute to Eric Mitchell
Eric was Principal of Westall Primary School which many Enterprise children attended so he brought a wealth of knowledge to the Spirit of Enterprise project. He was often ‘the sounding board’ for our ideas and gave wise advice when we were trying to solve problems.
When the first exhibition was being created the wording on the information boards was a real challenge. The number of words had to be limited, the language kept simple and the story clearly told. Eric’s contribution was invaluable, as was his contribution to the Enterprise Trail School Marker
He was a quiet participant at meetings but could always be relied upon to bring us back to the subject when our discussion started to wander off in all directions. As often happened !
We are among many organisations and people who miss him greatly.
