East Midlands in Bloom
We have visited King George V Park this week to meet judges as part of the Mansfield District Council’s application for East Midlands In Bloom.
Eight members of the School’s Eco Committee walked to the Park, which is very close to the school. It was a beautiful sunny day, and the children made full use of the Park’s facilities while they waited for the judges, looking out for plants, birds, trees and wildlife.
The children talked to the In Bloom judges about the different activities they have taken part in on the Park, such as designing a wood carving, sowing a wildflower meadow and planting a thirty eight tree orchard.
Nicola Elliott, Winner of a Chad Best in School 2016 award for supporting the partnership between the school and the Park, says
“The children we took over to the Park were a credit to the school. They talked with confidence to the judges about what we have achieved this year by working together.
We wish Mansfield District Council every success with their In Bloom application and look forward to hearing about the result soon.”
