A RECORD eight Bury St Edmunds schools won gold awards in this year’s Bury in Bloom schools gardening competition.
Golds were given to Riverwalk, Priory, St Edmundsbury Primary, Howard Primary, Westgate Primary, Sebert Wood Primary, Sebert Wood Children’s Centre and Little Angels Day Nursery.
The Young Green Fingers awards ceremony, held last Thursday at Guildhall Feoffment School, was the final public appearance of Bury in Bloom’s chairman, Mike Ames.
“Our children are the future In Bloom and to see so many young people interested and curious about garden is heartening. It makes me convinced I’m leaving Bury in Bloom in good shape for the future,” he said.
Howard Middle, Abbots Green and Westley Middle won silver awards, while St James Middle and Guildhall Feoffment won bronze.
