Hatfield school’s prayer garden opened by Lady Salisbury

YOUNGSTERS of all religions, faiths and beliefs will be able to pray in the newly-built garden at a Hatfield school.

And Lady Salisbury, of Hatfield House, was on hand to officially open the new prayer garden at St Philip Howard school.

She was joined at the Woods Avenue school by Father Philip Knights of Marychurch, Old Hatfield and Father Mark Vickers, of St Peter’s, Bishops Rise, pictured.

Lorraine Chamberlain, school bursar, said: “Our school is a Catholic school and this means that God is at the centre of all aspects of life.

“However, we have a mix of children with all different types of religions here, so this is a great development.”
