Lord Lieutenant opens potting shed
On Monday 22nd May, Hampshire's Lord Lieutenant, Nigel Atkinson, visited us to officially open the new potting shed. The Lord Lieutenant is King Charles III's official representative in the county, as well as the President of The New Blendworth Association.
The potting shed was paid for from £8,040 donated by the Rotary Club of Portsmouth North, raised from their annual charity golf day at Rowlands Castle last summer.
The Lord Lieutenent said: “I’m delighted to formally open this fantastic new building which will make such a difference to our service users here at the New Blendworth Centre. We are truly grateful to Portsmouth North Rotary Club for raising the money to provide this modern, well-insulated and well lit building which will be a huge asset to our nursery business. This is the single biggest donation we have ever received and donations like this make such an enormous difference to the centre and those we support. The Rotary Club members should feel real pride in making a difference to the lives of so many vulnerable people.”
