Community Green Space Grant awarded to Rutherford House School

Rutherford House School has been successful in its application for a Community Green Space Grant from the London Mayor’s Greener City Fund. Sadiq Khan announced his ambition to create the world’s first ‘National Park City’, following a manifesto commitment to make London 50% green by 2050. With the emphasis that BPET schools place on activity and outdoor stimulation, we are beyond pleased with this result. Rutherford’s successful application for the project ‘Rutherford Goes Green – From Grey Playground to Green Oasis’ aims to convert the concrete playground to create new green space for use by the whole community. Volunteer action days and community workshops are planned to both establish and maintain the space, with up to three generations of local people working in regular collaboration. The school was awarded £10,000 to develop 60sqm of green space, including growing areas and wildlife, in which it will establish sustainable gardening and outdoor learning space. The project has been given an anticipated completion date of July 2019.
