Pupil's efforts were not in vane
4:50pm Saturday 8th September 2012 in News
A WORCESTERSHIRE girl has designed a weather vane for the Jesse Tree garden at Holly Mount Church, Malvern.
As part of the competition, pupils at local primary schools were asked to design a weather vane suitable for the garden.
“For a few years now we have organised competitions for local schoolchildren to design new features for the garden,” said Andrew Webb, of the church.
“This year we asked for a weather vane and we were delighted by the response.”
The competition has been sponsored by JD Wetherspoon, which owns the nearby Foley Arms Hotel. The winning design, by Rebecca Palmer, of Malvern Parish CE Primary School, has been made by Morgan Blacksmiths, of Barnards Green.
It was due to be unveiled at the garden’s open morning today. The open morning, from 10am to noon, will also feature Wacky Weather, an art and science morning, where children will be able to explore some of the scientific principles behind weather features.
It will include the opportunity to make lightning and an indoor rainbow, make a barometer and anemometer, and even create a tornado in a bottle.
