We are winners!

Our Infants’ Playground – completed by business volunteers and parents on Give & Gain Day last year – has just won joint first prize in the Society of Garden Designers’ annual awards (Community Space category).

Triumph! Our infants' playground proved good enough for gold.

Triumph! Our gorgeous infants’ playground has proved good enough for gold.

Designer Jackie Herald was at the ceremony at the Milennium Gloucester Hotel in Kensington on Friday night to hear the announcement.  How Jackie splits the gold medal with joint winners Guys & St Thomas’s Hospital, we don’t yet know… but she’s bringing the framed award into school next week.

Well done Jackie; another million thanks to the volunteers from Flamingo who gave their time and muscle on Give & Gain Day – and a massive well done to all the families and children who made the project happen. That represents a lot of organization, activity and donations of time, goods and cash.

Let’s do it again on Friday 15th May this year, when we use Give & Gain Day to refurbish our school lobby and long corridor in accordance with the children’s designs…
