When it comes to green fingers, pupils at All Saints Infants, Sidmouth, know their onions and beans and carrots

WHEN it comes to green fingers, then pupils at All Saints Infants, Sidmouth, win hands down.

From nine schools competing in the second annual Primary School Garden Competition, organised by the Rotary Club of Sidmouth, they won the main cup for Best Garden, and a special shield for the longest bean.

The Webb Cup went to Seaton Primary School for having the best vegetable garden and they had shields for the heaviest beetroot and fattest carrot.

A special shield was awarded to Branscombe Primary.

Judges were Derek Hurford, his son Phillip and Darren Knapman of Sidmouth Garden Centre.

Prizes were presented by Rotary District Governor, Paul Edwards, at the Hotel Riviera last Wednesday, at which Ian Barlow, owner of the garden centre, was invited. He kindly donated vouchers for participating schools.

Both Ian and Paul are pictured with Enya Nair, Rachel Greenaway and Ella Maguire from All Saints Infants, as well as proud mums Petri Nair and Shelly Greenaway.

Teachers, helpers, and three schoolchildren from each of the three winners joined Rotarians for lunch at their club meeting.

A Rotary spokesman said: “This competition is very successful and a great way to involve Rotary with primary schools.”

Further information is available from Rotarian Sandy Macfadyen, district environment officer for the club, on (01395) 513741.
