Primary School needs your help!

Hi Everyone!

I work in my local primary school and we’d like the opportunity to teach our children the importance, and fun, of growing your own fruit and vegetables, and we’d like your help to do it. We are a low income area so spare cash for this sort of thing is very rare.

We have been entered into a competition along with 5 other schools in the area. This is a wonderful opportunity to win a fantastic prize!

“Elmsleigh is set to inspire younger people and aims to 'Get Schools Growing'! The battle is on for one local school to win a raised bed allotment and seeds, donated by Urban Allotments, plus gardening equipment and expert advice after the installation from Vermeulens Garden Centre.”

The rules are simple – the school with the most votes at the end of the competition WINS!

Unfortunately we started the competition a week later than the other schools. We have made up a phenomenal amount of ground over the last week but are still falling behind.


All we are asking is a few minutes of your time each day to register your vote on the internet – and to pass on this information to as many people as you can – family, friends, co-workers, anyone who might be able to help our children win this fabulous prize.

We have been campaigning constantly via word of mouth, canvassing on the streets and door to door and on the internet. We believe we could have a good chance of winning this competition – BUT WE NEED YOUR HELP!

Just go to :


and register your vote for ‘Stanwell Fields School.’

The competition closes at Midnight on April 11th and you can vote each day so remember to pass that on and come back and vote again and again!

Thank you all for your time, and wish us luck!
