Green Fingered Youngsters Help Town's In Bloom Bid

11 July 2017

Children from the Eco Club at Morpeth First School have once again transformed the barrow at Sanderson Arcade into a fantastic floral display.

The children have created a wonderful display of flowers with the assistance of horticulturist Raymond Dixon.

Raymond has been looking after the Arcade’s baskets and landscaping since the centre opened more than seven years ago and has been extremely successful in achieving a number of awards in the town.

The barrow is now positioned at the entrance to Stanley Terrace car park to welcome visitors as they enter the car park.

 Filipa Conceicao, Centre Manager said: “The children from the Eco Club have done such a good job in bringing the barrow back to life. We have received excellent feedback from our customers and I’m sure the judges will be just as impressed.”

Alongside decorating the barrow, the students from Morpeth First School competed in a drawing competition run by Sanderson Arcade. Students were encouraged to create ‘Britain in Bloom’ inspired artwork, with the chance to win some special gardening prizes. The Arcade team received more than 80 colourful entries!

First place went to Freya Crozier from class 5 followed in second by Rory Brownlee from class 6 and in third Temi Obishal from class 4. All three winner’s posters are displayed in Morpeth Bus Station.

Morpeth in Bloom judging will take place on Friday 21st July.
