Meet in the park!
The Best Park in Town! - Shaftesbury Primary School, Newham
This is a scene from one of the plays that the children devised about the history of West Ham Park.   The boy sitting on the chair is Dr Fothergill, the famous botanist who owned the site in the eighteenth century.  The two children who are standing are his patients who have come to see him because they are sick. The boy on the right is Dr Fothergill's servant. He is giving the doctor a rare plant for his garden which the patients have brought as payment for their treatment.
