The Floral St. Peter Port team have been busy enhancing Town’s environment in conjunction with the States Works department.

The team installed willow domes at Vauvert Primary School and willow domes and tunnels at Beechwood School and Amherst Primary School.

The children are so fond of running through the willow tunnel at Amherst Primary School that the floor of the tunnel has had to be reseeded.

Floral St Peter Port will enter Amherst Primary School into the Floral Guernsey competition as they did last year when the school won. The children impressed the judges with their knowledge of their outdoor environment.

At Notre Dame du Rosaire Primary School the Floral St Peter Port team installed a willow dome and a willow fence along two of the vegetable garden terraces to protect children from falling off the edges of the terraces.

Floral St. Peter Port has also installed a willow dome at Summerland House nursing home.  To enable wheelchair access, the entrance to the willow dome was made wider than at the schools.

A willow dome was also established at Wesley Methodist Church on Grand Bouet.  There’s a community centre at the church with a garden at the back, which is used by a parent and toddler group as well as other community groups.

Floral St Peter Port working in conjunction with the States Works department has enhanced the attractiveness of Town with many flowers in hanging baskets and flower beds.  The flowers in Trinity Square are particularly attractive at this time of year.
