Two students at Whitchurch schools have earned top spots in an international Olympic Wreath competition run by the Botanic Garden Conservation International (BGCI) organisation.
Rachel and Hannah Rahman of Kingsley Park created weaths from British plants – found on our Meadow! – and entered the competition through the Eden Project.
They were winners in the UK round a few months ago, and their entries were forwarded into the international finals.
All the global finalists – out of the hundreds of entries – can be seen wearing their creations on the BGCI website; click HERE.
MANY MORE WREATHS
On a related note, more wreaths were created earlier this month by visitors to the Mayday and Carnival Queen crowning on the Meadow in an Olympic twist to the traditional headwear.
Hannah attends Testbourne school and her sister Rachel attends Whitchurch CofE Primary School.
