The commitment of scores of volunteers from Stratton Upper School was plain for all to see as Sunday’s Farm Open Day and Plant Sale went off without a hitch.
Hundreds of visitors came down to the school to be greeted by staff and students, while the chicks, hens, guinea fowl, rabbits and alpacas at the Biggleswade school’s farm were the stars of the show.
On the day visitors browsed the various craft stalls, enjoyed the brass band who gleefully provided the sounds and made excursions to the well stocked and attended barbecue.
The farm now boasts the beginnings of a reused bottle garden made by visitors and the recycled gardening activity proved popular, with many youngsters proudly taking home a plant to grow in a recycled container.
Nippers were once again able to get messy making bugs, spinning wool, colouring, gluing and sticking under the watchful eye of the volunteers – who were more than 70 in all.
