Karen sees how plans for Great Grounds Centre of Excellence become a reality 

Karen Bradley, Member of Parliament for Staffordshire Moorlands was delighted to be invited to the opening event at the Great Grounds new Centre of Excellence for careers education in primary schools in Dilhorne.

Karen met Tony Millar, Director and his colleague, James Smith, Education Coordinator, to see how the plans she had discussed previously at one of her surgeries have become a reality.

There were many organisations there including Primary schools, Keele University, The Careers Enterprise Company, Staffordshire Chamber of Commerce and The British Association of Landscape Industries (BALI) - organisations that have worked closely with Great Grounds to develop their unique range of services for schools.

Karen said,

"It was lovely to see how the plans we had previously discussed at one of my surgeries have become a reality.

It was a pleasure to see over 100 children there, getting involved in a range of activities and enjoying learning outside the classroom. Congratulations to everyone involved."
