Delapre Diggers win Gold Award at Northampton in Bloom!


The whole school is incredibly proud of our Delapre Diggers green-fingered children who scooped a Gold award in ‘Northampton in Bloom‘ and a silver in ‘East Midlands in Bloom‘! Children and adults attended a ceremony at the Guildhall in October to receive their awards. Huge Congratulations to our gardening club. Special mention to three wonderful ladies who make it possible – Sarah Gordon, Alison Feetham and Alice Whitehead. A huge amount of work undertaken this year by all and it’s been wonderful to see the whole school getting behind them in support.

Exciting news: being part of Britain in Bloom next year – AMAZING!

The winners were announced this week and after all their hard work, the Delapre Diggers found out they had won the silver gilt award for the Schools in Bloom competition. Their work in the school garden and Pleydell Road allotments included Northampton themed projects such as the shoe garden and Saints rugby shirt design. Well done to all the children involved for their hard work, as well as our parent volunteers Mrs Whitehead and Mrs Feetham who came up with the ideas. Mrs Gordon too for assisting in each gardening session and local residents association for donating flower boxes. We are very proud of you all!
