The winning schools in the local gardening competition received their prizes on 13 September at Kings Garden Centre.
All three schools that entered received two selections of gardening goodies from Kings – a great encouragement to next season’s planting.
Littleham C of E Primary School won the best vegetable plot, best school garden and were the overall winner of the competition. They received cups, certificates and Kings vouchers – an excellent result as their garden is new and it’s the first time they have entered our competition.
Bassetts Farm County Primary School were joint runner-up in the competition, winning a certificate and Kings vouchers. They also had the best wildlife-friendly garden, so were awarded a cup & certificate, and a cheque from Birds & Bees for environmental studies.
Marpool Primary School were joint runner-up in the competition, and were presented with a certificate and Kings vouchers.
Our thanks to Richard King for sponsoring the competition, and to Karen Turner of Birds & Bees in Exeter Road for sponsoring the wildlife-friendly garden category.
