Out and About
Out and about with Stuart from Sustrans
The Smeeth Eco Club has been so lucky to have had Stuart from Sustrans come and visit for a number of sessions this term. Here is a little bit more about Stuart and the work he did with our children.
Sustrans is a sustainable transport charity who make it easier for people to walk and cycle. The work Sustrans do creates healthier places and happier people. They are custodians of the National Cycle Network and work to ensure the benefits of walking and cycling are enjoyed by everyone.
Stuart has been an Officer at Sustrans for the past 2 years working on projects across the South East of England. You will see him doing anything from auditing the National Cycle Network to community engagement and from conducting focus groups to led bike rides at schools. It’s the variety of work and the passion for the environment that drives him on.
From all of us at Smeeth, thank you for all your time Stuart and for sharing your expertise with us.
Some of our children have been lucky enough to be chosen to visit Pemsey Farm on a Friday to help with the Inspiring Lives Community Service, from Ashford Gateway, who support adults with disabilities within the community. Supported by Allison Nyssens, owner of Pemsey Farm, we will be able to pick apples from the orchard, meet the friendly chickens and ponies and of course take the vegetables home when they are ready! This is a fantastic way to learn through the local community and we anticipate much fun and excitement!
The children have been helping grow the community vegetable patch and making friends with the horses. Huge thanks to Allison and Sophie who have been so generous in having us.
