Britain’s Prince Charles shares gardening tips with pupils
Britain’s Prince Charles shared his gardening tips with pupils as he visited a local primary school.
The 67-year-old royal visited Ashley Primary School to open its additional learning facility, the Harmony Centre.
A post on the school’s official website reads: “He was greeted by a superb exhibition of the children’s learning in the school hall, followed by a visit to some of the classrooms. He then officially opened our new Harmony Centre by cutting a vibrant green ribbon.
“A wonderful assembly ended his visit, where he was presented with Ashley School honey, a sketchbook of the children’s work and a framed display sharing the lyrics to our Harmony song. It was a momentous occasion for us all and the children made everyone very proud – well done to Ashley School!”
During his tour of the school, the Prince of Wales watched on as pupils carted soil around in a wheelbarrow and carved ice sculptures.
Meanwhile, the Prince’s Gloucestershire estate will be host to a gardening festival in April. The plans were revealed yesterday (10.02.16) and will see the grounds of Highgrove House becoming home to ‘Highgrove: The Garden Celebrated’ for a week.
