An assembly was held last week to give thanks to Mrs Fraher and to present her with two steamer chairs for her garden-many thanks to those who donated towards these. There was music, dancing and even a choir made up of staff members!
Well done to our teams who completed at Goodwood motor circuit on Sunday 13 July. Team Samurai drove fantastically and came first out of 91 teams in the drag race! As always it was a hugely enjoyable day for everyone and all our drivers did well. Many thanks to Mr Mustchin, Mr Way and Mrs Tout for all their help on the day.
Only flush the three Ps – pee, poo and paper was the message from Southern Water at an annual schools eco-summit.
The Worthing-based company was among several organisations which held workshops at the 7th Worthing & Adur EYE (Eco, Young and Engaged) Project Eco-Summit, this year held at the Shoreham Academy.
Southern Water’s workshop was about water efficiency and also focussed on the company’s Pain in the Drain message, which encourages people not to pour fat down the drain or flush wet wipes down the toilet. Doing so causes 75 per cent of sewer blockages, which can lead to flooding and pollution.
Pupils from St Philip’s Catholic Primary School helped demonstrate the strength of wet wipes – which do not disintegrate in water – by having a tug of war competition with Southern Water’s mascot Mrs Bin-It.
Southern Water’s Helen Sparkes who organised the workshops, said: “The eco-summit is a great way of engaging young people through practical workshops. I was impressed with their knowledge and enthusiasm and they really took on board our water efficiency and Pain in the Drain messages.”
Its annual eco-summit welcomed about 12 schools to a series of interactive workshops
A huge thank you to everyone who participated in the walk to Hiorne Tower in memory of Miles, this raised a massive £437.69 for the Snowdrop Trust.
