Students from Moulton College have joined forces with North Northamptonshire Council (NNC) as part of the Out to Water, Into History (OTWIH) project. This project, funded by the Heritage Lottery through the Nenescape Partnership, provides a nicer green corridor linking the old and new Rushden. The project will use part of the old railway line in the town, and includes the installation of a welcoming gateway.
The project, scheduled for installation later this year will involve the College’s bricklaying, carpentry, horticulture and plumbing students, and provides an invaluable work experience opportunity celebrating the heritage of Rushden.
Gary Dennis, Construction Curriculum Coordinator at Moulton College said:
“Work experience such as this is crucial in providing our students with networking opportunities, and the chance to get involved in real life projects. This experience will be invaluable when progressing into a work environment.”
Cllr Jason Smithers, Leader of NNC, added:
“We are extremely proud of the Greenway, it is a brilliant community asset that we continue to work on and build, but we couldn’t do so without the help of our dedicated team of volunteers and our partners.”
