Dorset winner and regional nomination for Canford Community Action project 

Many congratulations to all our pupils involved in Ground Force - the Fourth Form Enterprise group.  Their work at High Mead Farm has been nominated for an Environmental Youth Award at the Bath  and West Show in half term, winning the nomination for Dorset.   This year’s project has been designing and digging a duck and fish pond for the farm.   Judges recently visited the farm to talk to pupils involved with the project and were very impressed with what had been achieved and their enthusiasm for the Farm.

The nomination prize of £250 will go towards the completion of this project.  The overall winner will be announced at the Show.

Canford has been working with High Mead Farm for a number of years.  This therapeutic farm offers a range of farming activities for those with learning disabilities and mental health issues.   For more information please visit
