A representative from the Campaign for the Protection of Rural England attended the Offwell School recently, to present the parish council with their first place award for The Offwell Haycart in the ‘Most Creative and Distinctive planted outdoor space’ category.

Mr Ivan Buxton made the presentation and spoke briefly to the children about the importance of looking after their surroundings.

He also encouraged the school to take part in the competition for 2017.

Councillor Whithear presented an orchid to Melanie and Peter Jolly, as a small token of thanks for all their hard work in keeping the Haycart so beautifully throughout the year.
