Royal appointment for Myerscough agriculture students

Wednesday 22 Mar 2017

Six Myerscough College agriculture students were given the honour of meeting HRH Prince Charles during his visit to Lancashire this week.

The group, along with Principal, Ann Turner, and Senior Lecturer in Agriculture, Anya Westland, were invited to meet the Prince as part of his tour of Dewlay Cheesemakers in Garstang.

The Prince of Wales is Patron of the Prince’s Countryside Fund, and Myerscough College has been awarded two grants to date from the Fund. The current project is to help students access training and complete courses particularly when it is key for them to have the appropriate certification to find work.

The students selected to meet HRH The Prince of Wales were:

Brittany Neale, 18, who is on an Advanced Apprenticeship in Agriculture; Chloe Hall, 16, and Ed Swindlehurst, 17, who are on a Level 3 Extended Diploma in Agriculture; degree students, Tom Gerrard, 19, and Amy Wilkinson, 20, who are both on the BSc Agriculture programme; and Isheshe Jimawo, 26, who is studying a Foundation Degree in Agriculture.
