The college was saddened with the news that Matthew Grimstone lost his life in the Shoreham air crash tragedy.
Matthew was a former greenkeeping apprentice with the college, completing last year, and had taken several courses during this current year after completing his apprenticeship.
He was a hard-working, enthusiastic student who was a joy to teach and very much liked by the college staff, especially staff within the Colleges Work-based Learning and Horticulture Departments.
Our thoughts are with his family and his colleagues at Brighton & Hove Albion Football Club.
Since the original 400-acre College farm was bought back in 1919, Plumpton College has certainly seen a lot of changes.
