Littleham C of E Primary School kicked off the year in style as it celebrated winning Exmouth in Bloom’s best school garden.

The institution and its pupils came top of the best school category and were awarded the best vegetable plot in this year’s gardening competition.

Mrs Sarah Padbury, the head of learning at Littleham Primary School, said: “It’s always good to win an award and recognise pupils’ efforts, but the real success here is that children have gained yet another valuable skill for life.

“They have taken real care to nurture the vegetable plot to ensure that they had a whole array of tasty treats to eat or share with the school kitchen. Gardening has been a real highlight for pupils and will continue to flourish at the school.”
