growing and eating their own food helped a group of schoolchildren to earn a prestigious award.

The silver Food for Life Partnership Award was presented to White’s Wood Lane Junior School, Gainsborough, by radio and TV presenter Bob Flowerdew.

White’s Wood was one of only 15 schools from the Midlands, and the only one in Gainsborough, to receive an award.

White’s Wood school business manager Rachel Ward said: “This is not just another award, it is our way of embedding a deeper understanding about the importance of what children eat and how growing their own food can impact positively on them for the rest of their lives.”
