A Flagg teenager has been selected as the first Duchy of Lancaster scholar at Harper Adams University.

Second year Agriculture with Mechanisation student Andrew Gregory-Campeau, 19, will receive £2,500 in the current academic year to support his studies at the Shropshire university.

Andrew, a former pupil of Lady Manners School in Bakewell and an active member of Buxton Young Farmers’ Club, said: “I am incredibly grateful to have been chosen for this award, which will help me greatly in my studies, funding essentials for my course.

For example, I will need to get my telehandler and spraying certificates before going on a work placement next year, and there are always more books to support my studies.”
