Ashford Park wins GOLD!
Quote from visiting judge:
"It was a pleasure to visit the school and be shown around the grounds and to see the work that has been carried out. Vegetable growing is an active programme, the Gardening and Nature Clubs with up to 20 children involved is a good indication of young people's involvement in the horticulture. Highlights of the visit were the Jubilee Gardens with its attractive plantings and bandstand like shelter and the wildlife garden at the rear of the site. The judge was pleased to see planters for each class, bird boxes and water butts and the presence of an Eco Committee.The Acorn Centre also had good examples of raised beds and hard fruit developing nicely. Photographic evidence of harvesting and cooking was also seen."
