Abbott's Eyrie Poem

Mr Nigel Richardson honoured the Grand Opening with another of his prodigious poems.

Abbott's Eyrie
Abbott's Eyrie
TheTree House Opening
16th November 2017
Abbot’s Eerie is now open for all
A wonderful landmark at Abberley Hall
11 years in the making a feat of engineering
Mr Abbot returned to cut the ribbon to rapturous cheering
To complete the project generous donations were seen
Rt Hon David Legh, The Foundation, Angell-James family and leavers of 2017
Judith and Geoff Brocklehurst were the driving force to complete
Mr Graydon, Mr Scott and Colin Williams; a team to beat
Mrs Detheridge’s Class 2 made the cushions for inside
A beautiful space for so many this will provide
A lovely celebration of a vision come true
Mulled wine, hot dogs and hot chocolate; a fitting do
Words from Mr Lockett to mark the event
Governors, parents and children contentedly sent.
N Richardson
