Gosport in Bloom – Best School 2019

We love gardening at Gomer and our Gomer Growers work throughout the year on fruit, vegetable and decorative projects. The school grounds are looking particularly beautiful at the moment and the efforts of all the growers this year have paid off – in more ways than one! This week, Mrs Carré and Mrs Mulhall attended the Gosport in Bloom awards with some of our Gomer Growers. The children were delighted to collect several awards on behalf of the school including: 4 gold awards, 2 silver awards and a bronze. The children received a trophy for each category they entered. We do need to work on our sunflower growing though – something for next year. The judges were very impressed when they visited Gomer and were shown our projects by the growers. With thanks to the whole community for enabling our projects and to the staff who lead on this – in all weathers! Gomer Junior were awarded the ‘Best School’ trophy which we were absolutely thrilled about. This is the second consecutive year we have won this trophy and it is testament to the all year round hard work and passion for gardening. Fred Dinenage presented the awards and we also appeared on Meridian Tonight on Thursday evening – a first for us. Go Gomer!
