Mrs Neeves was awarded the Optivo Natures Champion award at this year’s Kent wildlife trust’s ‘Wild about Gardens’ ceremony at Canterbury College on Thursday 25th October.
Mrs Neeves was nominated for the award by the Kent wildlife trusts judge who visited the school back in July. She came to see how the children of St Edward’s Catholic Primary School were gardening for wildlife in their school grounds. The judge was very impressed with Mrs Neeve's commitment and determination in a year when the school had gone through many changes and her encouragement in getting the children to engage with nature. St Edward’s Catholic Primary School won a bronze award for their wildlife gardening efforts.
