A five-year-old girl from Sandy has shown off her green fingers by winning a fruit and vegetable-themed competition.

Daisy MacKinnon, who attends Maple Tree Lower School in the town, made the winning entry in the Jordans Mill competition by designing a mask in the shape of a strawberry.

Daisy was invited to Jordans Mill gardens and museum on the edge of Biggleswade, where she was presented with a mini gardener’s pack containing everything to start growing her very own fruits and vegetables.

Daisy’s mum Laura said: “We were so excited when we got the email telling us that Daisy had won the competition.”

“We are going to use our prize to create a new vegetable patch and teach our children how they can grow their own vegetables and enjoy eating them.”

Jordans Mill, which is the home of Jordans Cereals and was opened as a heritage attraction in 2001, launched the competition as part of National Allotment Week earlier this month.
