Langham Oaks School was very pleased to announce that Jjay Crocker had been chosen as 1 of 4 finalists in his age group for the Royal Horticultural Society Young School Gardener of the Year award.
He was a finalist in his age group 14-16 and had beaten hundreds of entries.
Jjay plus 3 guests were invited to RHS Wisley on Saturday 23rd of June 2018 for the prize giving ceremony where he was taken on a behind the scenes garden tour and afternoon tea.
As a finalist he has won a Coldframe (worth £475) and a £100 National Garden Gift Voucher as well as a certificate and an engraved hand trowel trophy.
Jjay was required to make a 5 minute film about him and the garden for the chance to win his age group and potentially overall.
This is a huge achievement as this competition is country-wide.
Additionally, at the Royal Norfolk Show Langham Oaks students won first place in a competition for displaying how to use produce from a garden. The boys filled a wheelbarrow full of produce and compiled two A3 display boards with photos of the students working. JJay Crocker and Zak Turner both spoke to the judges about their work and everyone had a great day.
