 You can vote up to ten times per phone line and calls cost 10p per call from BT landlines. Calls from other networks may be higher and from mobile phones will be considerably more.


Grey Court Community Chickens will introduce free-range chickens to the school grounds.  This exciting project will give students at Grey Court and local primary schools a wonderful outdoor learning experience, from hatching and rearing chicks, to caring for the hens, and of course eating the lovely, fresh eggs.  Local people will be able to buy eggs and volunteer or train to keep chickens too.

Grey Court Community Chickens follows the successful Grey Court Community Allotment and represents stage two in the plan to introduce a small working farm within the school grounds. Keeping chickens is an easy and exciting way to start, by encouraging students to learn about caring for animals and producing fresh, local food.
