Goldfingers - Garden Club
To launch our garden club we held a competition to think of a name for the club and to draw a logo. Congratulations to Dylan from Nursery for thinking of such a fantastic name. Congratulations also go to Matilda in Year 2 for drawing the beautiful picture for our logo!

A tiny pumpkin seed planted during Goldfingers Garden Club grew into a baby plant which was taken home to grow on the families allotment. How pleased everyone was with the pumpkin when it was harvested and now the family are enjoying roasted pumpkin & soup as well as some chunks still in the freezer! What an acheivement!
Thank you for saving all of your Morrisons Gardening Vouchers and donating them to Goldfield.
We have been able to exchange them for some wonderful new animal homes!
Let's keep our eyes peeled for hedgehogs and birds that may move in.
