Chessington Community College, St. Phillips School and Ellingham Primary School are looking for companies to pick one of the recommended projects by the Special Educational Needs pupils and teachers to give the biggest benefit to three schools, maximising sensory impact.

These projects are a mix of architectural features and small gardens, designed by Howard Gregory of Chessington Garden Centre, to make the most of the available space and time available until the official opening on the 28th September 2018 by Ed Davey (MP for Kingston and Surbiton).

The Proposed Garden

Each of the architectural projects gives the opportunity for the company to purchase a one-off feature for the garden, and install it with your team. Company logos and placards welcome.

Each of the garden project(s) defines the plants required to be purchased with a detailed plan for your green fingered colleagues to plant. The planting of the gardens will be supervised by gardeners from Idverde.

They recognise that there is limited number of projects for companies to get involved with initially. This is to ensure they retain space to inspire the Chessington Community to engage with the schools to develop this garden further over the next 5 years, in line with the original intent to drive community engagement with the campus for all of the three schools.

They obviously welcome individual volunteers to get engaged with the garden projects that are being designed by school pupils, ranging from willow dens, garden mosaics, bug hotels, tactile boards, benches etc. where the school pupils are involving school teachers and the fantastic PTA.
