"It Looks Amazing, Thank You"

The day of the Worcester College Commemoration Ball has arrived and the end of a busy week for the gardening team.
Yesterday the herbaceous border was weeded and dead headed, the lawn that runs along the front, mowed and edged and the paths raked.

Today, in the front quad, the banks and the lawn were mown, the last job for the team, to rope off these area to help prevent damage. The herbaceous border, banks, quad lawn, tropical display and Provost's Rose Garden were all roped off in the hope that on Monday morning the team returns to how we left it!

A number of students have stopped the gardeners during this week and said "It looks amazing, thank you", we hope the 1400 people that attend tonight's ball enjoy the celebrations and their surroundings, the gardens do truly look amazing.

The next time the team go through this all again, 2014. The Commemoration Ball is held at Worcester College every three years and along with Magdalen and New College they continue this proud Oxford University tradition.
