Joel Cadbury, Chair of the Royal Parks Foundation and Fernanda Kellogg, Chair of the Board of The Tiffany & Co. Foundation hosted a celebration event yesterday to open the newly restored Italian Gardens in Kensington Gardens, including the fountain made famous when Hugh Grant and Colin Firth wrestled over Renée Zellweger in its basin in 2004.
Thanks to a wonderful partnership with The Tiffany & Co. Foundation we have been able to restore and renew the ornamental and drinking fountains across London’s eight Royal Parks - from old fountains that fascinate historians, to new and unique ones to delight modern architects and designers.
So much work and a lot of skill has helped bring the gardens back to their full glory.The Italian gardens are very beautiful and quite romantic. I would definitely recommend anyone to go and see them.
I am proud to be a Royal Parks Ambassador and take part in the Royal Parks Half Marathon every year. It's always good fun, last year I dressed up as a woodland fairy, this year I am set to run dressed as a squirrel (luckily a much more femanine version than the big furry one!) Good luck to everyone else who will be taking part this year. I hope your taining is going well. For more info go to http://royalparkshalf.com/
