Thanks to everyone who entered our Signs of Spring Competition in February.  We had lots of beautiful entries and judging was a very difficult task!
But after lots of deliberation Drayton Community Infant School won the prize for best school entry. 
Their entry included some great pictures and thoughtful words on the subject of Spring…. and what we really loved about this entry was the way that the children really captured the spirit of spring in their words.  Well done to everyone who took part – your gardening goodies are on the way!
