Silver Medal at Hampton Court!

2nd July 2015
Such exciting news!  Bristol Zoo's stand at the RHS Hampton Court Flower Show won a Silver Medal (the only Silver awarded!) in the Plant Heritage Marquee category!
 
Tina and the Forest School group have been responsible for growing Calendula 'Sherbert Fizz' - part of the National Calendula Collection that the zoo holds.  Instead of having the collection all in one place it is held in the community - a first  - and schools around Bristol have grown marigolds for the display.  Ours is the peachy-coloured one.
 
There was a recorded comment from Ava in Yr 3 about the project for people to listen to as well.
 
Tina and Enzo represented Hillcrest on Press Day at Hampton Court and had a really fantastic day!
