Royal seal of ap­proval for gar­den

The Courier & Advertiser (Fife Edition) - - NEWS -

The Queen has opened a £650,000 fam­ily roof gar­den at a hos­pi­tal in Aberdeen.

The space is de­signed to give pa­tients a flavour of the out­doors and help aid their re­cov­ery at Aberdeen Royal In­fir­mary.

She un­veiled a plaque for the fea­ture, which won awards at Chelsea Flower Show, and met former Scot­land man­ager Craig Brown, who is one of the gar­den’s am­bas­sadors.

The royal vis­i­tor, who was wear­ing an An­gela Kelly tweed coat with navy and white flecks and a match­ing hat, also took time to chat to nurs­ing staff and pa­tients.

The un­veil­ing of the Robert­son Fam­ily Roof Gar­den was fol­lowed by a bless­ing be­fore the Queen vis­ited a Sue Ry­der neu­ro­log­i­cal care cen­tre in Aberdeen.

Her majesty is pic­tured wav­ing to pupils from Ab­botswell pri­mary school dur­ing the visit to Sue Ry­der.
