Never too chilly to swim
SUMMER may be over but pupils at Hamstreet primary are still able to benefit from a solar-heated swimming pool.
The school is the first in Ashford to have solar heating panels and is one of only 10 in Kent.
Ridge Crest Cleaning, which works in partnership with schools to help them save money, donated £2,000, a third of the cost required to help finance the renewable energy initiative.
Head teacher Jane Macey said: “The solar panels mean the children will now be provided with heated swimming facilities from May to October.”
