Bloom – York’s First Horticultural Festival
During 5th – 8th July, York will be celebrating the 250th Anniversary of the ancient society of York florists, the world’s oldest horticultural society, founded in 1768.
As part of the celebrations, people are being invited to create a wall of flowers made from bottles and bags at the York library.
Mrs Reynolds has already been busy creating some masterpieces and she would love the parents and children at Lakeside to get involved. She will be making flowers on Monday and Tuesday lunchtime next week with any children that would like to have a go and after school, 3.20pm – 4.20pm, on Tuesday and Wednesday with any parents that would like to be creative. All we ask is that you bring along any old plastic bottles or brightly coloured bags and a sense of flare!
This years Sports Day will be held on Friday 6th July. Keystage 1 will take place in the morning and Keystage 2 in the afternoon.
We look forward to seeing you all then. On the same day the catering team will be preparing a barbeque because nothing prepares you for a run like a burger and a sausage!
