Work on building on the exact site of a Victorian glass house and using materials appropriate to the site has been possible thanks to a generous donation of more than £15,000 from State Street.
Michael Eades, Trustee of the Guernsey Botanical Trust wanted to thank State Street personally for their help with the garden’s restoration and presented Channel Island Global Services Managing Director Gerald Hough with a fruit basket containing the sorts of produce that will be grown in the new Orchard House in coming years.
Mr Hough said “it is wonderful to see how quickly the Trust has been able to turn our donation into the glasshouse we see nearing completion.”
“We are really pleased to be involved with a project that contributes to community life in so many ways and is going to be of genuine long term benefit to the Island.”
