We entered our school garden into the 2019 Bournemouth in Bloom competition and we are very proud to say that we came away with several certificates!
The competition asked for interesting garden designs and looked at how the school included horticulture in the education of its pupils. An additional competition was also included, which gave schools an opportunity to enter the National Sweet Pea Show, this year it was hosted by Stewarts Nursery in Christchurch.
To help with the work many children gave up some of their lunchtime to support the after school gardening club with the various jobs that needed doing. Parents & friends of the school got involved too with kind donations of seedlings and plants, which we planted out in our beds.
The competition was judge by members of BCP Council & Compton Acres and on the day of the awards, I took Addie & Noah Idle to the town hall in Bournemouth to hear the results.
In the company of the mayor, we won several certificates: 2nd place in the National Sweet Pea Show, Bronze for Garden Design and an Excellence in Horticulture award from the judges of Bournemouth in Bloom.
We very much hope to enter next year and aim even higher.
