Green-fingered youngsters at a Wimbledon school are celebrating a double horticultural win.

Mayor of Merton Councillor Krystal Miller paid a visit to Priory CofE School in Queens Road to congratulate them on taking a silver gilt award in the London in Bloom awards recently, added to a win in the schools category of Merton in Bloom last year.

Headteacher Jane White said: "Judges were impressed by the gardening the children had done.

"They grew and sold vegetables after school. Each class has a bed and they choose what they want to grow."

Councillor Miller, a school governor, presented children with certificates to mark the occasion.
