PUPILS and staff at Barley Hill Primary School had reason for a double celebration after receiving an award for their environmentalism and getting £1,000 in funding for a new greenhouse.

The school was awarded a Green Flag for, amongst others things, reducing their carbon footprint.

The flag was raised by Thame Mayor Councillor David Bretherton earlier this month.

In addition The Thatch restaurant handed over a cheque of £1,000 for the new greenhouse which they had raised.
