There was a big response to our 1600 Free Poinsettias for Schools offer, so much so that the number of schools receiving plants for every scholar was upped from 6 to 8.
Those schools getting plants were:-
Squirrels Heath Junior School, Hornchurch
Dosthill Park Pre school, Tamworth
Hutton Henry Primary, Hartlepool
Greet primary, Birmingham
Loirston Primary School, Aberdeen
Rowner Junior School, Gosport
Abbey Primary, Kilwinning
St Josephs RCP School, Bolton
Watch this space for more offers to school gardening clubs in the coming months and be sure to register for free potatoes in the gyop Potato initiative before the end of January 2017.
