Tony Millar is a long standing friend of Manchester Metropolitan University so when an invitation came through to attend the open day for his new Education Centre, Claire Pattison (Enterprise Fellow) and Shahrokh Nael (Video Production Assistant and Photographer) were delighted to attend and support this new business venture.
Great Ground’s new Education Centre is set in amazing 23 acer farm in Dilhorne, and the idea developed and growth through the support of tutors and peers on the ERDF Greater Manchester High Growth Network. The Education Centre provides many well planned, interesting and engaging activity stations including badger sets, construction demonstrations, woodland area, nature area, solar farm, outdoor classrooms, and local deer and foxes. Each activity station has school education learning objectives covering subject areas including maths, science and art.
The centre officially opens in September 2017 when schools will start to visit to connect education to the outdoors. The centre will also feature pond dipping and the three-schools visiting in July also got to meet the farm’s six friendly Alpacas. Tony Millar, Director, said it was “brilliant to see it come to life!”
