THE JOSH EDMONDS MEMORIAL SCHEME:  This has been set up to honour the memory of Josh Edmonds who studied at Cirencester College and then went on to work as a video producer for the Ministry of Sound. The scheme is setting up an annual opportunity for young people in Gloucestershire to win a months internship at the MOS. Josh died aged 22 in a road accident while traveling in SE Asia in early 2011. Josh was passionate music lover and a talented video maker and produced over 200 videos for the club. The scheme aims to provide a similar opportunity to emerging talent from Gloucestershire.  The successful applicant will gain a real insight into the workings of a major music brand, develop their own talent, and get the chance to meet and work with experienced creatives in the world of popular music. Ministry of Sound CEO Lohan Presencer said   “Josh was a fantastically creative and enthusiastic member of the team at MoS.  He originally joined us as an intern, learning the ropes, and was successful in gaining full time employment.  His was a tragic loss to his friends at MoS.  Hopefully this placement will give someone the same opportunities that Josh had and continue his memory.”

Totally moving song just uploaded about Josh:
