A wonderful afternoon

"He who learns but does not think, is lost! He who thinks but does not learn is in great danger"


The weather was kind to us on our afternoon garden open day. We enjoyed a steady stream of visitors throughout the afternoon.  The school recorder group and the choir performed on the wonderful stage that is the pond dipping platform.  A place for live music if ever there was one.

There were many games about the grounds of the garden which were busy for most of the afternoon.

Refreshments were available on the school drive selling tea, coffee, squash and home made cakes.

Around the garden our visitors commented on the colours and vast array of plants.

Finally a huge thank you to all the helpers, without who we could not have functioned and also a huge thank you to the Friends of Holy Trinity for their help and support.  We made £252 on the day which will be used in the Jurassic Garden.  Now that the land has been cleared we hope after the NGS weekend to continue with the project laying the Ammonite shaped path and infilling with a suitable medium from Portland Quarries.

If you missed the Open day do not fear! The NGS weekend is Saturday July 19th and Sunday July 20th.  All are welcome.  This prestigious event raises funds for charity and we look forward to seeing you there!
