St Nathaniel’s Academy also enjoyed a visit from Vale defender Will Forrester who was on hand to talk about what he does day to day to help and improve the environment.

Talking about the visit, Forrester said: “We don’t just want people to see us playing 90 minutes on a Saturday, we want to be seen in the community doing what we can and helping as much as we can.

“As long as everyone does a little bit more to tackle climate change, then it all adds up to the bigger picture and I think we all have a responsibility to do what we can and help the environment as much as possible.”
