We've been thinking a lot about sustainability and how we keep going when things get tough. Yesterday morning we popped to Old Portsmouth to workout how to develop our #SpiceIslandTrail following our new self led method. We've been doing some research and have found some great tools to make this happen and we're excited to roll this out! After our trail adventure we caught up with Solent University University of Portsmouth and Hampshire Chamber of Commerce talking about how we guide our teams through change. Next we caught up with the Lloyd's Register Foundation to hear all about the amazing work they do and how they are digitalising their archives for all to enjoy. #SeekYourSpark #Sustainability

February 2020 4 young people went on a tour of the 1851 Trust who are based in Ineos, located just a short walk from Portsmouth Sailing Club. The group along with Clair Martin, walked from Gunwharf Academy having been briefed. We followed the Millennium Promenade Trail. Following a tour of the building the 1851 Trust very kindly offered us use of their space to host our mid point conference. We were delighted!

Spice Island Trail
Spice Island in Old Portsmouth is a very special place and from the time it was first inhabited in the early 17th century has been one of the most vibrant and interesting areas of Portsmouth with its rich maritime history.
