Lead judge Jean Hardy said: “This has been a fantastic year, we are delighted that the standard just keeps improving. The Young Green Fingers competition has clearly helped make a difference to the school environment. Some of the spaces the children have created enhance and enrich learning, as well as providing a calm environment in our busy world.

“We realise that the children are not only learning about gardening as they also learn other skills from actively gardening.”

The Young Green Fingers celebration evening will be held on Thursday September 26 from 6-7.30pm at Guildhall Feoffment, when the Silver Spoon Trophy overall winner will be announced.
