Spring plans blossom into triumph for Woodlands Meed

Students from Woodlands Meed College in Burgess Hill returned home triumphant on Wednesday 14th March after attending The Jim Green Challenge hosted by the South of England Agricultural Society in Ardingly.

The competition is held in memory of chairman and founding member of the South of England Agricultural Society Jim Green and aims to encourage teamwork and build confidence.

Woodlands Meed students have been working on their competition products since September, creating pots of spring bulbs, bird tables, sculptures of birds, scarecrows, and sculptures of bird habitats.

Alan Robinson, lead teacher at the College was delighted with his students efforts,  ‘We received 5 first places out of all the areas of competitions, the students have worked really hard over the last six months on this project and it was fantastic to see that effort acknowledged with some first places.’

Lynda Guy from The Golden Lions Children’s Trust one of the events sponsors who was at the event wrote to congratulate Woodlands Meed - 

‘Many congratulations to the team from Woodlands Meed for their successes today at the Jim Green Challenge.  You must all be very proud of them and their work.

They were in competition with some older students, who are from colleges with more resources to work with.  Well done Woodlands Meed!
