From French farmyard to Victorian splendour!

An inspirational coffee van enterprise, Hector the coffee van – inspired by the former Head of Clevedon School Sixth Form, Jeremy Newall – has had a fantastic makeover.

Jeremy created Hector while at the school after buying the van from a farmer in northern France and it has since been used by students to serve coffee around the community and at school events as a social enterprise.

Jeremy, the school’s incredibly popular Head of Sixth Form, passed away almost two years ago in Christmas 2016 and his van is part of his amazing legacy at Clevedon School. The makeover was generously supported by popular coffee venue Teatro Lounge, who have been long-term supporters of Hector the Coffee Van. The work, which sees Hector restored to his exact original grey, was expertly carried out by Redhill Autobodies who specialise in such work and made sure every final detail of restoration was catered for.

“Hector is a wonderful legacy to have. Jeremy was a wonderful man and an inspiration to so many people. Hector has been a fantastic success and now it looks even better. I must express my thanks and gratitude to both Teatro Lounge and Redhill Autobodies without whom Hector would not be looking so resplendent and able to serve coffee for many more years to come.”
