Big grin as Cheshire Cat cre­ation wins

Macclesfield Express - - HEART OF THE COMMUNITY -

APRI­MARY school wowed judges to tri­umph at the RHS Flower Show at Tat­ton Park.

Ev­ery­thing came up smelling of roses for Whirley Pri­mary with its Cheshire Cat-themed gar­den.

The school won ‘Best Pri­mary School Gar­den’ at the event in Knutsford.

Judges were im­pressed by its in­no­va­tive use of re­cy­cled and up­cy­cled ma­te­ri­als.

Edged with hub­caps boldly painted as flow­ers, with green wooden spoons for leaves, there were two black and white cows made of plas­tic con­tain­ers and tin cans, sport­ing pink rub­ber gloves as ud­ders.

There were also three of Lewis Car­roll’s beam­ing Cheshire cats, from Alice’s Ad­ven­tures in Won­der­land, made from cush­ions and fab­ric with sil­ver com­pact disc eyes.

There were also a bronze prize for Adling­ton Hall and Gar­dens with its en­try ‘The Her­mit’s Gar­den’ in the Back to Back Gar­den cat­e­gory.

The Floristry Col­lege of the Year prize went to Rease­heath Col­lege, where lo­cal stu­dents study for a ca­reer in agri­cul­tural pro­fes­sions.

Mean­while, CVS Cheshire East, which links vol­un­teers to char­i­ties in Mac­cles­field, won the a sil­ver award in the Bloom­ing Bed cat­e­gory.
