We're thankful to all our donors so far who have bought a leaf on our Rose Garden Restoration fundraising tree. Here we have Mother and daughter Old Girl duo, Kathy and Olivia Goode standing next to their silver leaf.
We're hugely excited about the plans, that have already started, to restore the Rose Garden, including the arrival of 16 bags of mulch that were delivered last week.
Teresa Burton-Brown (OG 1974-1981), who as well as an Old Girl of the school, is also a direct descendant of Prior’s Field’s second and third Headmistresses, has been instrumental in advising the gardeners about the preparation and cultivation of the ground ahead of a delivery of red, white and green tulip bulbs in the old school colours. Already, some of the plants have been removed and cleaned (there is a perennial weed problem!) and it has been decided which plants will remain and where they go. We hope the roses will take to the new mulch when replanted.
It's all thanks to our fantastic volunteers as well as your generous donations that we can achieve our aim to restore the garden to its former glory. Thank you.
