YOUNGSTERS now have a ‘classroom in the countryside’ after a new facility was launched at Whirlow Hall Farm by Nick Clegg.

The Hallam MP and Deputy Prime Minister opened a £250,000 learning and training centre.

He then joined youngsters to pick strawberries growing in the farm’s polytunnels.

The new centre at Whirlow Hall will be used by 14-19-year-olds who are currently not in employment, education or training.

Mr Clegg called the facility ‘fantastic’, adding: “Whirlow Hall Farm Trust is a much-loved institution. I know first-hand the good work it does.”
