This year, the first ever Collaton St. Mary Country Show will be opened by popular Polar explorer, Antony Jinman Over the past 7 years Antony has developed a career as a Polar Explorer and Polar Educator, completing 15 expeditions to date, including becoming the 26th Briton to travel the 500+ miles across the Arctic Ocean from land to the Geographic North Pole in 51 days, a feat which only 200 people have ever accomplished. All of Antony’s expeditions have education and outreach work at their core, aiming to explore and capture what it is like to live in the Arctic and communicate that to a wider audience. His approach is founded on the belief that it isn’t enough to just travel somewhere; it has to be of value to the wider community so that we all can learn from an experience and journey.

Antony was born and raised in Plymouth and always dreamed of becoming a polar explorer and following in the footsteps of his boyhood hero, Plymouthborn Captain Robert Falcon Scott. This was a dream that Antony had from an early age, so why not ask him how do you become a Polar Explorer? After leaving school and college, Antony spent time serving in the Territorial Army and then in the Royal Navy and it was there he discovered he was dyslexic. Tragically, at the age of 21, Antony broke his back whilst on a snowboarding holiday, an event which changed his life. He decided that he wanted to pursue his dream and attempt to do what people had always told him he would never achieve, to become a Polar Explorer. At 23, he got a job as a tour leader taking groups on adventure holidays. It was whilst in this job that the world suddenly began to make sense and subjects that he struggled to

understand in the classroom became a lot clearer. It is this enhanced learning experience that Education through Expeditions (ETE) wishes to emulate, bringing credible eyewitness accounts of locations across the world directly into the classroom. At 25 Antony became an expedition leader and International Mountain Leader which took him on his first Arctic expedition to Baffin Island. After this great experience Antony was asked to visit his old school to give a presentation. This became another turning point in his life, as Antony was able to talk confidently about his experiences and pass on the lessons learned to his audience. It is now as an educator and not as an explorer that Antony would like to be remembered. To be able to share and inspire young people to follow their own ambitions in life. Education through Expeditions’ next journey will see Antony Jinman travel to Antarctica to follow in the footsteps of his heroes, Captain Scott and Sir Ernest Shackelton. The aim of the project is to run an interactive educational expedition to the South Pole, enabling school children to follow Antony’s progress and ask him questions along the way. Antony aims to be one of a handful of Britons to accomplish successful expeditions to both the North and South poles.

Come and join us for a story! Collaton St Mary Preschool will be holding several storytelling sessions throughout the day in the sensory garden (weather permitting). There is a wealth of research to support the fact that children who are read to on a regular basis when they are young are well prepared for success in reading and learning once they start school. Furthermore, reading to your child teaches them about communication, concepts such as letters, shapes, counting and colours, and builds their listening, memory and vocabulary skills. Most importantly it’s fun too!

Gribble’s Butchers are proud to supply Collaton St.Mary C of E Primary School every week with high quality local Devon beef and handmade sausages.

positive, inclusive, healthy and enjoyable lunchtime experience for the children, including using their own, home grown vegetable alongside local meat and fish.

Collaton St. Mary has placed great importance on the quality of their school meals and enhancing the children’s lunchtime experience, so the school kitchen has become an integral part of school life.

Kitchen Manager, Sam Ward, is proud to source local produce and have direct contact with local suppliers like Gribble’s, and when Torbay Councillor Chris Lewis recently visited the school, Mark Gribble was on hand to supply the beef and help to make sure that everyone had a good, healthy lunch.

The school joined the ‘Food for Life partnership’ and has put a number of practices in place to ensure a

“I’ve got four children of primary school age myself,” says Mark, “so I fully understand how important it is for them to get a well-balanced, high quality lunch. It’s why we’re always delighted to supply schools like Collaton St. Mary with great local Devon meat from farms that are almost literally on their doorstep. I know the animals have been reared carefully and farmed sustainably, and I know they’ve been butchered properly, so I’m happy that their meat is of the very highest quality, which is what children need.”

The centres are now full of plantlets of vegetable, salads and herbs. For those that find growing from seed daunting, this is the ideal solution! Remember many need hardening off so be wary about planting them straight outside – ask in the centre for advice if you are unsure. Many vegetable crops can be sown as seed this month – check the instructions on the packet and plant away! Broad beans, carrots, lettuces, spinach, salad leaves, leeks and chard are just a few ideas to get your healthy, cheap and home grown food underway! Sow seeds in short runs every fortnight to ensure a continuous crop. Don’t sew entire packets of seed in one go… the resulting glut is ridiculous! Plant out brassicas (net them to prevent birds eating them) and grow short term crops such as

lettuces and radishes between them to maximise the space. Get ahead with the summer crops – sweet peppers, tomatoes, aubergines and salads can be planted in your greenhouse. Earth up potatoes – draw the soil up to a ridge and over the plants when they are 6 inches tall. Repeat in a month and then again 2 or 3 weeks later. This prevents sunlight getting to the tubers, which turns them green and renders them poisonous. Continue with Spring cleaning. Hoe your borders to get rid of weeds before they take hold. If it is dry, attack ground elder and the like with systemic weed killer painted onto the leaves. Remember these systemic weed killers are indiscriminate and will kill anything they contact. Dandelions are a monstrous nuisance at this time of the year – if you don’t have time to

deal with them terminally, at least chop their heads off before they set seed. Water is a precious commodity – instigate good practices such as using kitchen and bath water for watering, collect rainwater and investigate ways to recycle water for your irrigation. Automatic watering systems are economical with water, as well as convenient! The trick with watering is to water thoroughly once or twice a week rather than little and often – although containers and baskets do need watering every day. Happy gardening! Fermoy’s offer fresh ideas, friendly advice and great service
