Children at a Hitchin school held their own harvest festival at a very special assembly – with all food collected being given to local foodbanks.
Pupils at Highbury Infant School and Nursery on Standhill Road became vegetable-based fashion models for the day as they performed in the very first Highbury Fruit and Vegetable Fashion Show.
Grapes, carrots, cucumbers and sweetcorn all graced the floor, each proclaiming why they were a better fruit or vegetable than the rest.
Head Helen Avey told the Comet: “The fashion show put a fun spin on our harvest celebrations.
“Last year Highbury donated 140kg of food, which helped to feed 19 people for three days – and we hope to match the amount this year.”

Those dressed as grapes insisted: “We’re the healthiest snack for your lunch – and best of all we come as a bunch.”
Mrs Avery added: “The final verdict was there wasn’t one superior to another, but that all fruit and vegetable are equally good for us.”
