The Judges, Jean Hardy and Pauline Byford, are delighted to announce the following awards in the Young Green Fingers 2013 competition.

Jean Hardy, Lead Judge says

‘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’

Bury in Bloom and the RHS Campaign for Schools Gardening are delighted to support the Young Green Fingers Competition , we are also pleased to see how local branches of national companies such as B and Q and Ridgeons are supporting their local schools by providing products and advice.

Guildhall Feoffment kindly held the celebration evening in September where over 200 pupils, staff and parents attended.

There is an exhibition of pictures in the Court Room at Ickworth taken by Miriam Johnson of the school gardens when she visited schools on their judging day with our Young Green Fingers judges Jean Hardy and Pauline Byford, the pictures give a glimpse of some of the fabulous projects schools have been working on this year.

Peter Seabrooke celebrity gardener presented the prizes.
