Designs blossom for Sophie

Pupil Sophie Turner from Farnborough Road Junior School, Southport was celebrating having being named as the Southport Flower Show design a garden competition.
The competition was opened to all junior school children in years 3, 4, 5 and 6. The children were encouraged to design an eco-friendly garden in line with the 2014 show theme of ‘Brazil’. Over 600 young people from 39 schools submitted their designs.
Sophie received £500 for her school grounds and a £50 prize for herself.
Adrian Antell, headteacher at Farnborough Road School, said: “Sally Wright, the Year 5 leader, introduced the children to the ‘Design a Garden’ competition and encouraged them to have a go – and what a result, with Sophie of year 5 being selected as one of the winners.
“Sophie is interested in gardens, ecology and possesses a creative streak which she has certainly put to good use. She is obviously delighted about the prize money as is the school.
“The £500 prize is likely to be spent on improving our nature area, where we encourage all kinds of wildlife to flourish.”
