On Friday 11 March, pupils from Year 6 went to Eastbourne Town Hall to represent Bede's Prep School in the Flora Garden Design Competition for the Wild Coast Sussex In-Bloom. This year, the theme was; Wild Coast Sussex highlighting the extraordinary keelp forests, seahorses and rays once abundant in Sussex which could recover and thrive if given a second chance.
The Bede's team won! Our winning design will be planted at the westernmost point of Eastbourne promenade, within an enclosed garden, just above the café at Holywell on 9 June at 10am. Please go along and see how the bed develops over the summer.
The organiser Tim said; "The children were fantastic ambassadors for both themselves and their schools and should be very proud. As ever, judging was not easy (but very enjoyable) with the 6 final designs all very closely scored – as is often the case, the overall winner was determined by the combined score with curriculum links, business links and the final presentation. Worth perhaps adding that simpler designs translate better as a planted bed for the duration of the season."
