Gustas in the frame for Blackberry Hill Open Farm Weekend prize

29th September 2014

Gustas Jakabauskas, a pupilĀ  at Ceara School in Lurgan has been rewarded with a limited edition print by local artist, Tanja Shields, following his success in the Blackberry Hill Farm colouring competition, which was held in conjunction with the recent Bank of Ireland Open Farm Weekend.

Blackberry Hill Farm owner, Harry McGaffin from Gilford, paid a visit to the school along with community representatives from ASDA Portadown to make the presentation.

ASDA, which supported the Bank of Ireland Open weekend event back in June, also supplied the school with seeds and equipment for the school garden.

“We had a lot of entries from the pupils at Ceara School and as well as presenting Gustas with his print of Irish hares we wanted to say thank-you to all the pupils at the school for their participation.
“Elaine Livingstone and her team from ASDA in Portadown were in attendance at my farm during the Bank of Ireland Open Farm Weekend and were great support.
“I would just like to thank ASDA for that support and the equipment that they have donated to the School.
