We are holding a fundraiser on the 4th of November at Kelso Rugby Club. See our poster for more details.
We had a hugely successful tractor tour of every primary school in the Scottish Borders on the 9th of March.
A big thank you to Ancroft Tractors, Rose of Lamancha, Thomas Sherriffs & Co Ltd, Lloyds Tractors, George Marshall, Kelso & Lothian Harvesters, Rickerby, Henderson Grass Machinery and farmer Drew Oliver.
Thanks also to Harrison & Hetherington Ltd Mart St Boswells and NFU Mutual for insurance on the day.

RHET SBCI can help you with:
For Primary and Secondary schools
RHET SBCI has a number of farms in the area with a network of volunteer farmers and their families who kindly give their time to support RHET. A farm visit can support many areas of the curriculum such as environmental studies, IT and business studies, technology, science, mathematics and enterprise. Visits are provided from Level 1, linked to experiences and outcomes, and compliment DYW, STEM and LfS agendas.
We carry out regular risk assessments of all participating farms to the standard recommended in the Health and Safety Executive’s Guidelines on Educational Excursions. Around two weeks prior to the actual visit, the class teacher will visit the farm with our Project Coordinator to meet the farmer, walk the route and check over the risk assessment.
For Nursery, Primary and Secondary schools.
We have a network of trained classroom speakers, made up of volunteer farmers from the local area, who can visit your school and bring farming and the countryside to life. Once a booking has been confirmed, the speaker will contact the teacher to discuss the format, content of the session and curriculum links.
