'Blooming marvellous' display at Young Gardeners of 2013
Winners: Foulds School pupils Olivia Train, nine, Joanna Cox, nine, and Hazel Kenny, nine, with their winning display.
Schoolchildren put on a “blooming marvellous” display at yesterday’s Young Gardeners of 2013 competition.
Eight schools went head to head to create original displays using fruit and vegetables they had grown over the past year.
The Dwight School, St Mary's and St John's school, Holy Trinity, St Paul's, Hollickwood, Livingstone School and The London Academy were all praised for their creativity but it was Foulds School who judges decided should take the top spot.
The Mayor of Barnet Councillor Melvin Cohen also awarded children at Foulds School for growing the largest pumpkin.
Organiser of the event Jo Connolly, of Hendon Horticultural Society and Sunnyfields School, said: “The schools came and set up the most blooming marvellous display of all their hard work during the last year and fantastic fruit and vegetables.
“It shows that children all love being able to get outside to grow their own food. They were all very enthusiastic about their school gardens. It was lovely to see Barnet schools so active across the borough.”
The event was held at Sunnyfields School in Hendon and was sponsored by Hendon Horticultural Society and Finchley Nurseries.
