Hadlow Colleges new Rural Regeneration Centre, officially opened by Sir Robert Worcester, chancellor of the University of Kent, is thought to be a UK first. The eco-friendly building, pre-fabricated in Austria and costing just 450,000, enjoys a deliberately rural setting on Blackmans Farm, a working dairy, and will play a key role in teaching students about sustainability, climate change and rural business, as well as being a venue for hosting meetings and conferences on rural business. SEEDA has funded half the project and its rural director, Valerie Carter, said the iconic building that would be a showcase for sustainable design. Mark Lumsdon-Taylor, Hadlow Colleges finance director, added: Im hoping the programme weve got will make agriculture and related rural industries attractive to people.
