We received the following message from the Wight in Bloom Co-ordinator — Merilyn Hughes
I am writing to thank you all for taking part in the Wight in Bloom Awards yesterday. Alan Titchmarsh was delighted to meet all the pupils and see first hand their hard work and enthusiasm for each of your gardening projects. Having spoken to some of the children during and after the event I know they were enthusiastic about taking part in the day.
Congratulations to everyone involved—particularly the children (Esme Barclay-Jay, Sophie Rackett, Poppy Gosnell, Mikey Watson, Molly Dodd, Lyra Shorrock, Leila Pullan, Bethan Marsh, Elyna Pearce, Megan Hodgkinson, Paige Robinson-Baker, Ben Tilbrook, Callum Churches-Wingrove and Emily Rackett), Bill Wyke and all the parents who helped with the event.
The Bay CE Primary School will be helping the Isle of Wight Food Bank again this year with our Harvest contributions.
The Isle of Wight Food Bank provides emergency food for people in times of need. Our continued support will help prevent local families from going hungry.
The Harvest Festival will be held on Wednesday 28th September so please bring donations into school before this date and leave them in the entrance area or give them to class teachers.
Donations need to be non-perishable items.
Examples of suitable items are listed.
Thank you for your continued support.
