Green fingered students show their budding talent
The growing talents of Bury St Edmunds’ schoolchildren have been recognised at an annual awards ceremony.
Pupils from schools across the town were rewarded for their gardening skills at Guildhall Feoffment School last Thursday for the Young Green Fingers Awards.
Designed to spark a lifelong interest in all things green, the ceremony saw Abbots Green Community Primary School scoop the Silver Spoon Award for Outstanding Achievement and a Gold Award after their children grew a range of produce.
Julia Rackowe, from Bury In Bloom, who back the awards, said: “To see what the children and their teachers have achieved in a year when even the most experienced of gardeners has despaired at the weather conditions is nothing short of miraculous.”
Gold Awards were also given to Guildhall Feoffment Community Primary, Howard Middle, Sebert Wood Community Primary, Sebert Wood Children’s Centre and Westgate Community Primary.
Silver Awards went to Howard Community Primary, Priory, Riverwalk and St Edmundsbury CEVA Primary. Bronze awards went to St James Middle and Westley Middle while Sexton’s Manor Primary picked up the Judges’ Discretionary Award.
