A Welwyn Garden City school has backed a campaign to reinstate a community airfield in Panshanger.
Knightsfield School, which caters for pupils with hearing difficulties, has pledged support to Project Phoenix by signing its nearly 6,000-strong petition.
Headteacher Suzanne Thrower said: “The school is very keen to support local community causes and Project Phoenix represents a project that will benefit the people of Welwn Garden City and the surrounding area.
“We were also very fortunate that the outreach from this project could directly benefit the students through the wonderful session held here and we are proud to be affiliated to this initiative.”
Last week pupils enjoyed a visit from Sci-Hi Education’s Chris Jefferson, who delivered a STEM interactive lesson using his replica model of a Hawker Hurricane.
It was made possible by Yes Flyers – a group that supports events aiming to teach youngsters about flying – after Project Phoenix’s Sue Hart put them in touch.
