New School Garden Design

On Saturday 10th July 2021 the Uplyme & Lyme Regis Horticultural Society held their annual show, and the new school field was used for parking visitors to the event. The Bestic Trust put on a display about the new school with particular emphasis on the creation of the the garden. Jenny Short, who designed the scheme gave an inspirational talk about the design that has been developed with both sustainability and learning in mind.
