Work done to get the award included providing healthy hot lunches and encouraging the children to drink water.

Pictured last are children from Ancaster Primary School during their annual harvest festive service.

The event took place at St Martin’s Church, which had been decorated by parents of school gardening club members.

All the produce was due to be parcelled up and delivered to older people in the village.
