23 students visit Ashton Hayes from Georgia, USA

08 March 2017. Sarah Winget, Associate Professor in the Department of Chemistry at Agnes Scott College, Decatur, Georgia, USA and her colleague Matt Ruby, brought 23 students to Ashton Hayes today to learn about our Going Carbon Neutral project. They had heard of us from the New York Times article last August and were keen for the students to learn more about our project as part of their Global Challenges course. The visit began with a tour of the sports pavilion followed by a short slide show and a discussion session, during which Kate and Maria provided hot drinks and pastries. After a few minutes in the play area the group visited the community shop where they purchased a range of goods from souvenirs to meat pies. We ended the tour at the village school, where Matt Hover, the headmaster, told the group about our solar panels.
