Pupils from a Twickenham school have been named winners of Richmond in Bloom's School Gardening competition.

Chase Bridge Primary School were announced as the competition winners on July 9, at a special ceremony.

Deputy Mayor Cllr James Chard, presented the school project manager, Mei-Ling Kan, along with three keen pupil gardeners from the school, with a commemorative trophy.

Cllr James Chard, deputy mayor of Richmond, said: “Congratulations to Chase Bridge Primary School – their gardening efforts are ‘blooming marvellous’.

"I am thrilled that so many young people in our local schools are getting involved in gardening.

"Our borough is famous for its parks and open spaces and I hope that next year even more enter the Richmond in Bloom competition.”

The school received a £100 gardening voucher from the competition sponsor, Mr Colin Squire who also handed out runner-up prizes of £75 voucher to Meadlands Primary School and a £50 voucher to third place runner-up The Harrodian School.

All three schools, plus Grey Court Secondary School, won Gold certificates from Richmond in Bloom and Silver Gilt certificates went to Trafalgar Junior, Trafalgar Infant School, Hampton Hill Junior, and Archdeacon Cambridge’s C.E. School.
