Young Greenfingers Awards 2014

A packed auditorium at the Apex Theatre, Bury St. Edmunds of students, teachers and parents from ten schools were present to see The Young Greenfingers Awards Presentation 2014 this week. Part of the Bury in Bloom Campaign, this schools initiative grows from strength to strength each year. It was great to see so many keen young gardeners and hear about the crops they are growing and successes of their school’s Gardening Clubs. When the doors opened at 5-00pm there were stalls including the Royal Horticultural Society, British Trust for Ornithology, Master Composters and Crafty Foxes. Ahead of the Award Presentations Alison Findlay from the RHS spoke on their School Gardening Campaign. Schools have been growing sunflowers for the RHS Golden Anniversary of Britain in Bloom. Crafty Foxes Prizes were presented by Terry Rayner of Terwins Seeds, before the Young Green Fingers Awards. To see more pictures and reports on line search: Bury in Bloom-Schools Competition.
