Neil reflects on what he has gained from his upbringing in Barton and Tredworth.

Neil was born in Gloucester to Jamaican parents who emigrated to Gloucester in the 1950s.  The family lived first in Widden Street, before moving to Alfred Street, from where he attended Widden School.

During these reflections on growing up in Barton and Tredworth, he refers to the 25th anniversary event celebrating the opening of the new Widden School building, which Neil attended as a child.  He also discusses how performance, and originally dance, inspired him to develop a sense of worth.  Neil now works professionally as an actor, dancer and singer, and enjoys teaching these skills.
