Childcare Centre gets Green Fingers

Sainsbury's donates free edible trees to the College Childcare Centre

Childcare Centre Planting A Tree

The Alton College Childcare Centre was given free edible trees from the Woodland Trust and Sainsbury's Active Kids. Toddlers from the group braved the cold and used their green fingers to plant the saplings in the College grounds.

Barabara Wills, the Childcare Centre Manager said “The children will benefit from the trees as they learn and watch how they grow through the seasons.”

When the trees mature they will not only provide shelter and habitats, but also edible nuts and fruit. The pack contained dog rose, elder, cherry plum, hazel, crab apple and blackthorn saplings.

The 'Art' of Recycling

An exhibition of art using recycled waste opens

Art of Recycling

The “Art of Recycling” exhibition can be seen in the Reception of  Alton College until Friday 1st October. This collection of work from artists of every age group spans an array of styles and materials that all have one thing in common - they are all made from rubbish!

East Hampshire District Council and The Greening Campaign challenged residents to produce “recycled art” that would tour the area. This exhibition has now reached Alton College. This project was first introduced to the students during the College’s Green Week in May.
