North Norfolk school scopes gardening award
Proving they really do have green fingers are pupils at a north Norfolk school who have scooped an award for their gardening work.
Pupils and staff at Happisburgh Primary School have been named the winners of the Campaign to Protect Rural England's Norfolk award for grounds.
The school was nominated by David Yates, landscape officer with Norfolk County Council, in recognition of their work on a forest school area, seaside sensory garden, vegetable garden and orchard.
Head Lynda Clayton said: 'Before we did any of the work on the gardens it was just a blank canvas because there was nothing there at all. The school council have been involved in the planning of the whole area, there has been a real input from the children.
'Happisburgh can be a rather windy place, so it has been a real dedication to duty a lot of the time.
