From classroom to countryside: students put skills to good use
Posted by: pembscollegesuperadmin
Pembrokeshire College’s Environmental and Countryside Conservation students have been putting theory into practise building a boardwalk to connect two green areas of Haverfordwest.
Eleven Environmental and Countryside Conservation students recently received a special civic award for their hard work in building a boardwalk pathway along the northern edge of the Saltings, to connect it with a footpath under the town bypass which leads to the Priory Ruins.
The Haverfordwest Mayor’s Award 2018 was presented to the students by Cllr Sue Murray of Havefordwest Town Council along with Cllr Jon Collier, who spearheaded the plans, and representatives from South Hook LNG who provided a £5,000 grant to get the project started.
Lecturer on the course, Mark Brace commented: “It is great to see the students receiving recognition for all their hard work which involved planting more than 300 trees as well as building steps and pathways. This is a hands-on course so it’s always great for students to work on a project such as this.”
