A group of nine students from Ormiston Park Academy visited Davy Down recently as part of Thurrock’s Next Top Boss Challenge.
They were tasked with delivering a Land of the Fanns interpretation project focused on the site’s historic pumping station.
Debbie Brady, Heritage Engagement Officer for Land of the Fanns Landscape Partnership Scheme, said: “It was great to see the students get stuck in to a real life project and the Next Top Boss Challenge is a great way to enhance the students’ employability by helping them to develop their skill set. I look forward to mentoring them through the task and wish the winning group good luck in going forward to Thurrock’s Next Top Boss finals next year.”

I used to work at Askern pit so I've got an affinity with the place. I've been volunteering at the park for the past couple of years, helping people get the most out of it.
