Green fingered youngsters are eager to pitch in as part of a new, tasty money-making scheme.

Year 3 to 6 pupils at Hinderwell School are putting their business heads together in the Green Fingers Challenge which will see them produce and sell flowers, herbs and vegetables at their summer fair.

The deputy mayor and mayoress Andrew and Sue Backhouse, pictured with pupils, attended the launch to motivate pupils.

Deputy head Conrad Fox said: “It’s going to be a cross-curricular topic to promote teamwork, business enterprise and marketing of produce.

“They will sell them to the community with an idea to raise funds and develop a Key Stage 2 garden.

“The children are very excited and keen to show their skills in growing, marketing and selling.

“The deputy mayor and mayoress gave a real icing on the cake to the launch; it gave an opportunity for them to share with children how Scarborough Borough Council does the same, but on a bigger scale.” 131611
