Renowned international sculptor Christine Charlesworth is honoured and delighted that 6 of her
sculptures are at Chelsea Flower Show, which opened 22nd May. They will be featured in
the 'Come to Your Senses' Eco Garden designed by Vicky Page of Scotts Miracle-Gro,
Frimley. The garden aims to tackle the overstimulated and sedentary lives of children in the
UK with a design that encourages children to enter the haven of a garden. It will be situated
in the Discovery Zone of the Great Pavilion.
Andrew Simcock, Chair of the Emmeline Pankhurst Statue Campaign, says, "I am delighted for Hazel. Since first meeting her eighteen months ago she has impressed me with her passion for women's rights and gender equality, her enthusiasm for the project and her willingness to engage in the broader educational opportunities that this project will unlock.
