Story Garden

Holmsdale Manor Nursery Ibstock Jayne's Story GardenIn 2010 we developed an area of our field into a special story garden in memory of Jayne Laud, who worked here for over 20 years and was loved by everyone, colleagues and children alike. Now, this area is a beautiful and well used space.

Kind donations from Jayne's friends, family and past pupils allowed us to create an area she would have loved. She loved to read stories so it seemed very appropriate.

Holmsdale Manor Nursery Ibstock Watering the story gardenA local carpenter made us a very special story chair out of oak, shown in the photo above. A local green woodworker created several benches and some woven fencing for the area, in the photo to the right. We planted a variety of flowers, trees and bushes, which the children help care for.

Children enjoy hearing stories in this special area and some of the older ones even like to sit in the chair and tell their own stories to their friends!
