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.”
