Potters Bar school to mark diamond jubilee with the Queen’s spade

IT’S not just Her Majesty the Queen is celebrating a diamond jubilee this year.

For, on Sunday, Mount Grace School, in Potters Bar, is holding a school reunion to celebrate its own 60th year.

The event will include a picnic in the grounds, where ex-pupils can bring their own goodies from noon onwards.

And Hatfield House has kindly lent a very special spade to headteacher Peter Baker.

The gardening implement is none other than the spade used by the Queen when she planted her Diamond Jubilee tree last month.

To mark the occasion Mr Baker will use it to plant a jubilee rose at the site at 4pm.
