“Strength lies in differences, not in similarities

Last Saturday evening  the school garden was transformed into something a bit special.  The garden group volunteers had prepared the garden for a carol service with a difference.  The event would be held in the dark with members of the school present and also from Holy Trinity Church .

The main path was lit by candles up to the willow classroom and the classroom itself and other prominent features in the garden were floodlit.

As the carol service was about to start we were delighted to see our good friends and neighbours from Highclere House arrive and stay with us for the service.  The staff and residents were made most welcome despite a troublesome gate lock.

The following pictures give a feel to the mood of the evening.  The school choir led the singing which started with traditional carols and finished with a few more seasonal songs.

With the end of term rapidly approaching and the school finishing for the Christmas break activities in the garden will take a rest but work is planned over the holiday period when the garden volunteers hope to kick start the Jurassic Garden.
