A ground force of volunteers from Roberts Bakery swapped flour for flowers when they helped youngsters from New Mills High School to make the finishing touches to what they hope will be a winning garden at this year’s RHS Flower Show at Tatton.

Pupils have spent months designing their own small ‘front to front’ garden, growing plants and creating imaginative artwork. The garden celebrates 600 years of New Mills and its strong heritage in the textile industry.

New Mills High School will compete against four other secondary schools for the coveted ‘High Schools’ trophy.

Twelve primary schools from across the region will go head to head in the ‘Primary Schools’ category.
