RHS Chatsworth 2017

We had lots of fun making the bug hotel for the first ever show at Chatsworth

This was a very exciting project for us to be involved with as it was the first time a RHS show had been held in the grounds of Chatsworth. The theme for the show was 'Design Revolutionaries' looking at architecture through the centuries and in to the future, and build your design in what ever way you felt. We went for the past, present, eco and future approach. We had lots of fun building the bug hotel. We'd also like to thank all the helpers that came in to assist us with the build, it looked amazing on completion. We were invited by the RHS to attend Press Day, which we were very proud of, and something we will always remember. To say we were there on the very first RHS Chatsworth is great, and something that can't be repeated. Although the weather on the day wasn't the best, and Press Day closed at 1pm it didn't spoil it in any way for us. Our 'Bug & Breakfast' bug hotel looked amazing in amongst the other entries, and we felt very proud to stand next to it for a photo. We met lots of great people including Rob Smith, who'd won BBC2's Big Allotment Challenge, RHS Director Sue Biggs, BBC East Midlands today presenter Maurice Flynn and celebrity florist and judge Jonathan Moseley. On the show's completion Jonathan very kindly gifted Chaucer his wicker serpent which had been hanging across his floral bridge creation. What a kind gift, and for now the serpent will live in our school garden. We also managed to meet up again with George Hassall, the RHS Young Ambassador who had visited Chaucer a few weeks previous. Also during the day we managed to visit the BBC outside broadcast bus, and some of us found out what it was like to read the weather on a tv screen which was lots of fun. We made our day last longer with a visit around the gardens and watching the giant fountain in the grounds. It was a brilliant day, and something I'm sure we'll always remember being part of! :)
