New greenhouse and seat at Hope House

Following on from the donation of a sit-on mower in January 2018, Bob Ferguson, Foundation Officer of the Rotary Club of Ashby-de-la-Zouch has completed the second part of the Foundation’s donation, namely a magnificent greenhouse and garden seat at Hope House.

We were delighted to welcome Bob back to Hope House on 29th May when he officially presented the Trustees with the greenhouse and seat.  The mower has been in regular use since the start of Spring and it is wonderful to see the extensive lawn looking so well manicured!

The greenhouse will provide extra interest and activity for our guests and has the potential to provide fresh salad for the kitchen, whilst the garden seat provides a great place for guests to watch the prolific wildlife that regularly visits the garden at Hope House.

The money for all three items was raised at the Club’s Golf Day at Willesley Park Golf Club in September 2017 and match funded by a Rotary district grant.
