Faringdon school wins Wilkinson Sword's design challenge

The Gardening Club at Stanford in the Vale CE Primary School at Faringdon, Oxfordshire, is rounding off a summer filled with Gold Awards at RHS Wisley and nominations for ‘RHS Gardening Team of the Year 2017’ with another win – Wilkinson Sword’s Gardening for Schools Champions.

In September of last year, primary schools across Oxfordshire were approached to take part in the competition, which saw them charged with designing their ideal fruit and vegetable garden for their school.

The popularity of the project and quality of the applicants took the organisers by surprise.

Stanford in the Vale impressed all of the judges with their imaginative and competent design (above). They are due to be presented with their prize, a Wilkinson Sword Garden Tools hamper, on Tuesday. There will also be a fruit-growing masterclass from RHS Young Gardener of the Year (2012), Lucas Hatch.
