Pupils from Barncroft and St Alban’s C of E primary schools, along with children from the Federation of Trosnant Schools, attended the Havant and District Horticultural Society Show.

The event took place at St Faith’s Church Parish Hall. Havant Camera Club’s display of nature photographs drew praise, as did the Leigh Park Scouts who ran a tombola stall.

Ray Cobbett from Havant Friends of the Earth staged a display at the show, which focused on the group’s bee campaign.

He said: ‘It was hard work keeping up with questions about what people could do to help our bee population.’
