Good news to start the New Year that the new roof on Signal Point House has been completed.  Stuart Hensall (above) will shortly be finishing the hips and replacing the ridge tiles.  The roof has been watertight for some time and soon the interior will be refurbished .

Once completed Signal Point House will be used as on site accomodation for students gaining work experience at the Garden, interns and other visitors.  Located at the top of our Arid Garden the house has views out through palm trees to the English Channel.  This will be the new home for the students on the VBG Scholarship which is nearly full for the year 2013, although we are already logging applications for 2014.
