They were given a tour of the village, the South Downs and the church in Alfriston.

Before visiting Alfriston, Monday and Geresomu visited London where they took in some of the famous sites and buildings.

The Budongo Conservation Field Station is a base for a wide variety of research and conservation.

The organisation’s website says it aims to ensure sustainable management and utilization of the Budongo Forest Reserve as a model for tropical rainforest management.

The forest is home to thousands of tropical plants and animals including chimpanzees.

Students and scientists are welcomed to the station to help with the research programme.
