Every year, Squires Garden Centres give local schools the opportunity to grow their own potatoes, and once harvested, Squires Café Bar teams normally cook them up into chips for the children to enjoy.
It couldn’t go ahead as normal this year, but Squire’s in Frensham provided their local school with everything they needed so that the children could grow their spuds at home.
Pupils from St. Mary’s Infant School in Frensham managed to successfully grow their potatoes at home with amazing results! The school secretary commented, “All the children enjoyed growing the potatoes, and eating them! Let’s hope that next year we can take part again, and have a harvest over at Squire’s Garden Centres.”
Sarah Squire, Chairman of Squires added, “Well done to these students for nurturing their crops so well – a brilliant lockdown achievement!”
