Truro College Scrub Up Well

Truro College Students at Poltesco
60 students joined us recently to remove scrub from the cliffs at Predannack,Chynalls Point and Poltesco as part of a residential visit. The students got involved as part of their International Baccalaureate Qualification, adding to the community hours required in their studies. It was also a great opportunity for them to get to know each other and to work as a team in a different setting to the classroom.The Two days proved to be a great success for the students and The National Trust with some extensive scrub removal achieved , the results of this hard work will benefit  wildlife, better Public access and Archeology and at the same time gave the students a better understanding of the Trust's work. 

Burning up
During the days at Chynalls Point an old stone field boundary was uncovered which had been completely covered for many years and may be with further investigation part of the old Bronze Age Fort  The next step here is to get it surveyed. Many thanks to all who were involved.
