Gardening Success for Walton Priory


Walton Priory Middle School children and staff are celebrating their recent success in the Stone in Bloom School Gardens Competition.

The school was awarded first place after the gardens were judged in the summer term. The gardening club was started a few years ago by Mrs Williamson and Mrs Heeley.

Mrs Williamson’s dad Mr Cronin volunteered to lead the club every lunchtime and is now honorary ‘Head Gardener’.
Apart from keeping the school’s extensive gardens neat and tidy and full of flowers the children also grow fruit and vegatables.

Mrs Julie Williamson (Year 5 teacher and Gardening club leader) said

“ We are delighted to win such a prestigious award, the children have worked very hard every lunchtime with my dad”.
