Congratulations to the winners of the 2030 Climate Action Award at the @greengowns - @dmuleicester and @BordersCollege Your achievements towards sustainability are deserving of such recognition. Thank you to everyone making Marjon a greener place!
Lest we forget. Back in the 1970s when we moved from London to Plymouth, we received funding to plant a green area for peace for students needing to gather their thoughts. The funding came from a group that had been with us in the time of World War
The students studies had been interrupted when they were called up to the armed services. Many of them came back injured, and some never made it back at all. At the time, lots of colleges wouldn’t take injured students but Marjon made sure they
A fund was started to help the children and families of the students who never came back. When the campus moved, the remaining World War One students decided to give the remaining funds to the new campus to create an area called ‘The Dell’.
It even paid to transport plants and cuttings from the original Chelsea campus. So, when you sit down under our trees, wander by the water or gaze at the wildlife, give a thought to our World War One students who made it possible.
