Finally, our third picture is of members of the gardening club at Ancaster CofE Primary School.

The school was celebrating after recently being given a Food For Life Partnership bronze award for its healthy and climate-friendly food culture.

The gardening club was attended by more than 30 pupils and run by parents. Members had grown courgettes, tomatoes, strawberries and developed a wildlife and pond area.
