Pupils of Archbishop Cranmer Church of England Primary Academy, Aslockton, hold their own horticultural show
A primary school whose pupils would normally go to horticultural shows got over the disappointment of their cancellation by holding one of their own.
Pupils of Archbishop Cranmer Church of England Primary Academy, Aslockton, are used to going to Flintham, East Bridgford and Thoroton shows to see how the countryside works, but that wasn’t possible this year because of coronavirus.
So the school hit upon the idea of holding its first ever horticultural show.
Headteacher Melanie Stevens said of Tuesday’s event: “We even procured a small marquee for authenticity.
“The children had lots of categories to enter and we aimed for it to be a celebration of all the work people did in their gardens during lockdown.
“Lots of folk grew their own fruit and veg and we wanted to combine this with celebrating coming back to school.
Judging was at lunchtime and the children then went see who had won.
