Six of our Aurora Centre students received a visit from Siobhain McDonagh, MP for Mitcham and Morden, during their work placement at the Farm Road Pavilion. Aaron, Joe, Samuel, Julius, Tegan and Sultan welcomed Ms. McDonagh, who enjoyed looking at the work they were doing.
The work placement is with the National Trust and Tooting & Mitcham United Football Club (TMUFC). The Farm Road site is owned by TMUFC, who have redeveloped it as a community hub. The National Trust, supported by volunteers and Aurora Centre students, maintains the site. Jobs include site maintenance, planting trees, shrubs and herds, building fences, identifying and using tools safely, establishing wildlife habitats and hedge trimming.
