Students at the Sir John Gleed School in Spalding took part in a competition organised by the PFA to design their own ‘peace garden’.

A large piece of land on the school grounds has been cleared and prepared ready for them to create their own garden which, it is hoped, they will manage and care for.

Competition winner was Zoe Crane, who received £60, with runners-up Kaiei Weston, Sidrah Hussein and Clayton Foster getting £25 each.

The competition, judged by Andy Boyton, head gardener at Springfields Gardens in Spalding, was for students to make their own garden designs.

PFA member Anthony Grunwell said: “We were thrilled by the entries and the enthusiasm in which the students tackled the design.

“We all look forward to seeing the garden develop through the eyes of its designer Zoe.”

Andy added: “I am delighted to know that the students of Sir John Gleed School are keen to be inspired and take time to educate themselves in order to understand the environmental important factors within their garden designing to support the natural

living world.”
