Schools of Letchworth & Surrounding Areas

Is your school growing produce this summer? If so, would you like the chance to show it off to the people of Letchworth? LDGA invite you to enter the Arch Cup, the annual schools’ competition for best display of produce from the school garden which is held at our Summer Show on the 13th July.
In addition to this, schools may enter a ‘BBQ’ themed collage made from recycled materials.

We do hope your school will be able to join in this year; Wilbury Junior School and Northfields School Gardening Club, both winners in 2018, said how much fun they had taking part.

Full details can be found in our Show Schedule for Children & Schools
