Green-fingered pupils awarded

WINNERS: Mayor of Camden, Councillor Abdul Quadir, with pupils from winning schools

BUDDING GARDENERS from a selection of north London schools were crowned at the annual Camden in Bloom horticultural competition.

The pupils from local primary and secondary schools in the borough of Camden scooped up a host of accolades, which included trophies, certificates and plants, for making their school gardens stand out, at the ceremony yesterday (July 18).

The awards were presented by director of Camden Council's children, schools and families department, Ann Baxter, and the Mayor of Camden, Councillor Abdul Quadir, among others.

Mr. Quadir praised the initiative and participating schools for involving the children in "looking after our natural spaces".

"We’re especially pleased that so many pupils are growing and then eating the food they’ve grown, learning where food comes from is very useful. Looking after our natural spaces is good for children and good for the environment,” he said.
