The reason for this is that whereas the College can cope with the expected numbers of visitors around the College buildings, unfortunately the car parking fields are currently too wet. And although Saturday is forecast to be drier, there is a lot of rain forecast for Wednesday and Thursday prior to Open Day. Public safety is the foremost concern and is reflected in his decision, which has been taken with great reluctance and is much regretted.
The Principal, staff and students at Plumpton College appreciate all the efforts many people have put into this event. They are very unhappy about having to make this decision, especially in a time of drought. Plumpton College has cancelled the Open Day a couple of times before in the past, and only because of ground conditions.
Plumpton College intends to have an Information Evening on Thursday 28 June when enquirers can get careers advice and find out about Land Based courses available at this Sussex College.
