Crystal Palace arrives at Hampton Court Palace Flower Show

Posted by Philippa Pearson on 23 Jun 2010 at 03:49 PM

The grounds around the magnificent Crystal Palace Exhibition Centre in South London was where the guiding movement began in September 1909. In their Centenary year, it only seemed right to have something relating to this great occasion in the show garden celebrating 100 years of guiding at Hampton Court. On Monday, Rob Moorhouse a clever blacksmith based in the Lake District, turned up with a Crystal Palace inspired archway strapped onto his trailer and hey presto, one archway is now standing rather grandly in position at the entrance to the garden.

Elsewhere on the garden during the second week of the build the warm weather (nor the football!) hasn't slowed the pace of the garden's construction. A rubber safety surface in glamorous pink has been applied to the base of the sail shade structure and the turf landform is under construction; it looks a bit like an air raid shelter at this stage but will look rather more like it's intended end product once the turf has been applied. It's a nice 'cocoon' sort of space where girls can chill out and have time to chat about important matters.
