The London Children’s Flower Society
Spring Bulb Competition
Mrs Smoothy and the Forest School Ladies have been very busy of late! The team have been running a spring bulb competition with the help of the London Children’s Flower Society as well as working closely with The Woodland Trust in preparing for a delivery of 60 new trees.
Her Royal Highness The Countess of Wessex had agreed to become the new patron of the London Children’s Flower Society and has attended several events on behalf of the Society.
Pickhurst Academy part of the Chancery Education Trust took part in this year’s Daffodil Spring Bulb Competition. The Academy recently finished with nineteen of the children bringing their plants for display in the hall, placing them on the stage, before the start of school. Each pot was clearly labelled with the student’s name and class. Even the bulbs that had already flowered were bought in as the judge was still able to get an idea of the growing styles and health of the plant. The judge presented every plant- grower with a certificate of merit, along with a Gold, Silver or Bronze sticker.
In addition, the display as a whole was judged against other schools and an award will be presented at a later date. The volunteer judge from London Children’s Flower Society was Mrs Fleur Wood and she spent time meeting some of the children who took part in the competition.
