The recent hot weather we had at the end of March coincided with Sheppey College’s Community Week. It was an extremely busy time and an opportunity for them to complete the Kemsley project that had been planned just before Lockdown in March 2020. The area is planted up in 4 different colours to represent the different stations along the Swale Rail Line. Blue for Sheerness, Yellow for
Queenborough, Red for Kemsley and White for Sittingbourne, withthe Bridge representing Swale station.
Kent CRP and Sheppey College have worked together on numerous projects over the last 3 years. Each project aims to give students the skills they need to prepare for employment and showcase their skills, as well as making a difference in the local community, while also making improvements to the stations along the Swale Line.
We would like to take this opportunity to thank Mike Dendor from Swale Borough Council and Community Rail Network, for all theirhelp in funding the plants and materials for the project. We would also like to thank Suzanne Abbott who kindly watered the
plants for us over the weekend.
Well done to all the students and staff involved and also thank you to Southeastern for supporting us as always. If you are local and would like to become involved in helping to maintain the area at Kemsley, then please get in touch with us.
