Now we’ve got a quiet cor­ner to en­joy

Kentish Express Ashford & District - - School Report -

A new peace­ful gar­den for pupils has opened at Eger­ton Pri­mary School.

The Quiet Gar­den, which was funded by the Parochial Church Coun­cil and the school, was de­signed by the pupils them- selves and cre­ated in a pre­vi­ously unused part of the play­ground.

The gar­den was land­scaped by two past pupils of the school, Lawrence Kale from LJC Land­scapes and Richard New­man, with the help of Jenny Oliver.

The Bishop of Dover, the Rt Rev Trevor Will­mott, of­fi­cially opened the gar­den when he toured the school and at­tended a school morn­ing assem­bly in St James’ Church, Eger­ton.
