A new garden has been unveiled at Clevedon Montessori School.

The newly-designed garden at the Albert Road site was opened by Gina Connolly, who was invited to cut the ribbon in memory of her husband, John, who looked after the garden for many years.

Children from the school attended the grand opening along with their parents and grandparents who all enjoyed an al fresco lunch together beforehand.

The garden will provide children with the opportunity to grow flowers, vegetables and herbs which can be used in the school’s cooked meals, as well as a sheltered area for pupils to stay out of the rain or to stay cool during hot weather.

There is also a garden shed to safely store all of the school’s gardening equipment which the children can use to care for the new garden.
