A right royal day at the greenhouse

As Luke posted, today we had the honour of HRH the Duke of Kent at Writhlington to officially open our new school and, of course, no visit would be complete without a proper tour of the greenhouses. Greenhouse club were in position to tell him about their ochids, the habitats they come from and other interesting facts. Here is a selection of highlights:

Caroline – “Somehow I forgot to say ‘your Royal Highness’ and just said ‘Hi’ but he seemed quite happy and was really interested in Masdevallias.”

Ike – “He was brilliant”

Zoe – “He was interested to know what we do.”

Mitchell – “I was suprised and pleased with how much time he spent with us. He asked some really intelligent questions.”

Matt – “it was fun to have him here and a really good experience”

Definately a good day and we’ll add some photos when they are released by the press.
