Irene Pryce, Michael Haines and Bryony Nixon, from the ADAS committee, were delighted to visit Audlem St James' School on the 16th September to judge the fabulous marrows that the children had grown over the summer.
The small marrow plants were given to the children after the summer half term holiday. The children then had the whole summer to grow marrows.
This, however, was more difficult than one may have thought. There were some small specimens returned and some plants seemed to produce lots of flowers but then never bore fruit.
Nevertheless, there was an impressive display of marrows from each year with Harry Cottrell's topping the scales at 12lb. Some even came in fancy dress courtesy of Libby Rayne in Year 3 (who also came 2nd in her year!)
Each year received a first, second and third position with Harrison Saunders (yr2) receiving the prize for best diary.
The following were the first prize winners: Reception Tom Satchii 8lb 4oz, Year 1 Chloe Sherwin 9lb 8oz, Year 2 Harry Huntbach 9lb, Year 3 Elsie May Cottrell 8lb 14oz, Year 4 Lucy Huntbach 7lb 2oz, Year 5 Harry Cottrell 12lb, Year 6 Annie Goodwin 6lb 2oz.
