On the 12th February 2013 Suffolk Fellows will launch ‘Shout out Suffolk’ in response to the RSA and Suffolk County Council’s Raising the Bar Inquiry.

Raising the bar aims to discover practical ways in which Suffolk can become a place where education is excellent and improving, schools and employers work together, and there is a culture of learning and high expectations both inside and outside of schools.

We would like a say an enormous thank you to the Sea Life London Aquarium for all of their help and support for our ongoing Palm Oil Campaign, which is a petition aiming to change EU legislation so that companies would have list palm oil as palm oil, rather than being allowed to mask it as vegetable oil or fat in their product's ingredients.

In late December, we received an unexpected surprise of more 1,058 signatures from the Guest Experience Team at the Sea Life London Aquarium who provided guests with information about the palm oil situation and the opportunity to sign the petition during their Rainforest Conservation Week which ran from the 12th until the 22nd of September 2012.
