A SCHOOL chaplain who has stepped down after an extraordinary 50 years is developing a garden.

Rev Tim Hall stepped down as school chaplain of St David's College in Llandudno last term.

He has been quick to find a new project and this latest one is to generate beauty.

"What I want to help doing is to generate beauty, one of the founding principles of St David’s is to create awareness of wonder," he said.

Instead of growing vegetables, Tim’s garden is going to be filled with flowers which will then be picked and put in vases around the school.

“I think it would be very hard to grow enough vegetables to feed the whole school,” he added.

Raised beds have already been constructed, bulbs already planted and some of the pupils alongside have planted seedlings in the greenhouse ready for planting out.

He said: “It’s also a more sustainable way to grow flowers, far greener than having them flowing in from places like Africa.”
