04/04/2018

Lots has been happening at Holt Hall between Christmas and Easter – here are a few snippets of what’s been going on:

 

In the grounds…

 

The grounds team and

volunteers have been

planting and constructing

Living Willow tunnel in

the play area with THREE 

different entrances! 

 

The walled garden has

new raised beds ready for

planting…

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

and wild garlic coming

through which will be used

in the kitchen

 

 

 

 

 Victorian walled gardens

were traditionally a mix of

flowers and vegetables –

Toby our Apprentice has

planted a bed of assorted

bulbs, funded by Friends

of Holt Hall

 

 

In the Kitchen…

 

Joy and Denise have been

busy baking delicious

cakes and biscuits for

visiting schools, team

days and the up-coming

‘Hop, skip & a

run into Spring’ Event

 

 

 

                                                            

 

 

Teaching & Learning…

We have had some truly

wonderful schools come

to stay who embraced

the outdoor learning

environment and

all it has to offer…

 …and then after a busy day

enjoyed the roaring fire

in the hall, the delights

of the kitchen and

relaxing in the lounge!

 

 

 

In the House…

 A new pool table arrived

for the Lounge and

 has already had

lots of use!

 

 

 

Britton painting &

decorating contractors

came to decorate

Heron bedroom after

bit of a leak from

all that snow

– it’s light and bright

and all ready for

it’s next visitor now!

 

 

 

 
 

Looking forward…

 Fleggburgh School drew

us this beautiful card 

after their visit –

we would like to echo

the sentiment to all

the fantastic schools,

groups, teams and

businesses we have seen

this term and very much

looking forward to

welcoming all those

booked in next term!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 Jenny and Caroline have

been  practicing cooking

damper bread and scones

on the camp fire ready

for our ‘Hop, skip & a

run into Spring’ event

on 15th April –

we look forward to

seeing you then!
