Caistor’s Whitegate House Kindergarten has received this year’s Best School Garden gong from the town’s In Bloom group.
CiB chairman Deborah Barker went along to present the plaque to school principal Angela Lawrence, together with some of the children who had been involved in the planting and harvesting of the various flowers, fruit and vegetables on show.
“A lot of hard work has gone in here and many of the children were well versed on identification of each variety and had planted some from seed,” said Ms Barker.
“The gardens have been extended into a new car park area and a lot of debris had been removed to form the delightful planting area, with lovely wildflower meadows adorn the parking spaces.”
Also to receive a well-deserved plaque were keen gardeners Peter and Gwen Thompson of Horsemarket, who won Best Spring Garden for their array of bulbs and spring planting.
“It was a joy to see” said Caistor in Bloom committee member Rick Merrall.
The next competition is the Waltham Herbs sponsored main Garden Competitions, which will be judged on the July 14 .
