Members of the primary school garden club design their own spooky lanterns
Members of Shute Primary School Garden Club designed and carved their own pumpkins for Halloween.
Their own crop has been very good this year following the new rabbit-proof fencing around the raised beds.
But the pumpkins they decorate were partly donated by Millers Farm Shop.
The club which remains hugely popular with ages from four to 10 is run by parent and governor Samantha Knights and local volunteer Mary-Anne Driscoll.

“The kids loved this activity. We try to do a variety of things in the club in addition to planting, weeding and pruning,” said Samantha.
Since being runners up in the prestigious Acland Award earlier this month, the school garden club has also planted more than 100 bulbs in the grounds, using the money they received for their place.

This is part of the transformation of the school grounds which began with the pre-school outdoor area and has culminated in the building of tiered seating for an outdoor stage.
