'There were over 280 entries for this year’s poster competition Oliver has been awarded second prize in the 7-9 Age Group. In addition Grace and Sophia have been awarded a ‘Merit’ in this year’s competition.
Because of the large number of entries, this achievement is something they, and your school, should be proud of.'

Planting daffodil bulbs ready for spring
‘Leighton-Linslade in Bloom is a charitable campaign that aims to create lasting improvements to the local environment for the benefit of local residents, workers and visitors, now and for future generations to enjoy imaginative planting of trees, shrubs, flowers and landscaping.
The Friends of Leighton-Linslade In Bloom are all volunteers who work alongside the Town Council to ensure that the campaign’s aims are upheld.
We also have plant stalls, open garden days, front garden competitions and have created 2 Community Gardens in Pages Park and Linslade Recreation Ground. In addition we have litter picking weekends and competitions for schools and young persons’ groups. The current project is improving the area around the North Street / Leston Road roundabout.
For the last 3 years, In the Anglia In Bloom Competition, the judges have awarded the Town Golds for its floral displays and community efforts’.
The club looks after the tubs and flower beds around the school.
Over the summer a small area of school lawn was developed for the children to grow things in.
The layout was based on a design by gardening club, which allows easy access for all the chidren as well as encouraging wildlife.
