year13awardwinnerThe Fred Roche Travel and Study Awards consist of three £500 awards to support those studying or looking to study horticulture, landscape design, architecture, urban design or arboriculture. Vanessa Gurung was successful in winning one of the awards and this now gives her an opportunity to broaden her subject knowledge through travel, either in the UK or abroad during the summer holiday.

Vanessa said: I want to study architecture, hopefully in Newcastle University. Architecture involves studying past structures to inspire and build new ones. Therefore, learning by travelling is an important aspect in architecture, as different ideas can be seen through structures in different countries. I have decided to spend my prize learning about architecture in Italy, as their different culture and history is reflected through their structures. It will give me a good foundation for my first year at university.

Sports Day at Walnut Tree will be on Wednesday 5 June. In case of bad weather, it will be necessary to move this to the reserve date of Tuesday 18 June.

Sports day at Brooklands will be on Tuesday 11 June. The reserve date for this is Wednesday 19 June.

These days will commence at 8.30am. It is anticipated that Sports Day will have finished by 3pm.

Inevitably, residents may experience some noise from the PA system, but speakers will face away from residential buildings and noise will be kept to a minimum. Many apologies in advance for any inconvenience caused.
