Prince of Wales will visit Battle and Steyning
4:28pm Wednesday 16th July 2014 in News
The Prince of Wales is heading to Sussex to follow up a project he launched last year and to visit primary school children.
His Royal Highness will be in the county on Friday when he visits the Coronation Meadows Project which he launched in 2013 in an effort to conserve flower-rich grasslands across the UK.
The day will begin with a private visit to the Coronation Meadow for East Sussex at Beech Estate near Battle where Prince Charles will meet land managers involved with the process of meadow restoration, and have a photograph taken for the Walk a Country Mile campaign, organised by The Prince's Countryside Fund.
His Royal Highness will then attend a Reversing the Trend conference, organised by Plantlife, The Rare Breeds Survival Trust and The Wildlife Trusts, which aims to find ways to begin to halt the decline in UK biodiversity in species rich grasslands at Wiston House in Steyning.
The Prince of Wales will attend a working conference which has been convened by three charities who are working together on the Coronation Meadows Project, with a view to looking for holistic solutions to the conservation of meadows and other grasslands throughout the UK.
After listening to a Question Time panel chaired by science, environment and rural affairs broadcaster Tom Heap, he will meet Steyning Primary School children who are taking part in a Countryside Classroom Chef on the Farm day to follow the journey of food from field to fork.
This initiative aims to give children an outdoor learning experience which helps them to connect with where their food comes from.
