Finishing Touches For Encaenia 2012
The day of the Encaenia has arrived and the team spent the morning making sure everything in the gardens is perfect for such a grand occasion. The Provost's lawn is mowed again before the table and chairs are moved into position. The paths are hoed and then raked again.
The Provost's rose garden lawn is mowed and the all the roses dead headed, (Ali and Joss were filmed by BBC Oxford dead heading and mowing to show the preparation being made for the event and a very important guest, unfortunatley the film ended up on the cutting room floor). The quad is mowed and all the marquees are in place, all is now ready for Encaenia 2012.
