SPAN­ISH stu­dents have been en­joy­ing a stay in Ash­ford. The group’s visit has been hosted by Nor­ton Knatch­bull School. A to­tal of 17 stu­dents from Mur­cia in south east Spain took part in the ex­change visit. Dur­ing their stay they vis­ited Ash­ford Civic Cen­tre to meet Mayor Cllr Norman Ayres, who ex­plained his role and the pro­ceed­ings of the coun­cil. Stu­dents had the op­por­tu­nity to ques­tion him and were sur­prised to find he had a good knowl­edge of their re­gion of Spain, based on his ex­pe­ri­ence in that area as a young in­struc­tor for the Royal Navy. They went on to visit Ash­ford town and the de­signer out­let. Dur­ing the stay they have also vis­ited Can­ter­bury, Rochester, Lon­don, Hast­ings and Rye. This is the sec­ond year that Nor­ton Knatch­bull has run the ex­change or­gan­ised by Anne-Marie Slad­den and Hugo Todea, which en­ables stu­dents to learn about each other’s lan­guage and cul­ture.
