Pupils from Langney Primary School will be gathering at Holywell this Friday (June 13) to see their winning design of the Beachy Head Lighthouse planted out.

They will meet deputy mayor Jim Murray, representatives from Eastbourne Borough Council and invited guests, including Shirley Moth from Save our Stripes, as part of the Lighthouses In-Bloom initiative organised in conjunction with Eastbourne Education Business Partnership.

The school won the annual In-Bloom competition for Eastbourne primary schools in March and will be helping the deputy mayor and staff from The

Landscape Group to plant out the winning carpet garden design. This is the 20th In Bloom design created by local primary schools.

The initiative contributes to school curriculum work by putting learning into context and developing links beyond the classroom. The theme celebrates the famous lighthouse at Beachy Head. The previous mayor, Mike Thompson, helped to choose the colourful contribution to the annual carpet garden displays on the seafront and had praised the children for their outstanding contribution. Langney’s winning design will now be seen by hundreds of visitors and residents over the summer months.
