Rehoboth - JAC's Equine centre opened by Zara Phillips

On Tuesday, May 13, the Queen's granddaughter, Zara Phillips, officially opened JAC's (Just Around the Corner) new Equine Assisted Learning Centre called Rehoboth on the outskirts of Wokingham.  JAC has been working with local young people since 1998, won a Queen's Award in 2008, and now has a centre to focus on all of its activities encouraging young people to make positive choices.
Zara Phillips and Sam MilliganNearly 200 people attended the event including Mayors from Wokingham Borough, Wokingham Town and Woodley.  Local business people, church representatives and many of the volunteers who have helped to build Rehoboth were at the official opening.  Zara Phillips was given a tour of the premises to see where young people have the opportunity to work with horses, but also to work with arts and crafts.

"It is such a privelige to come and look around.  It's such a special place where you can relax and really be yourself.  The horses look fantastic," said Zara Phillips, obviously delighted at the great work taking place.
