Kingsland delivers Kent grown crunch to local primary school as kids limber up for Create A Fruit & Veg Masterpiece

RJ Kingsland & Son, one of three sponsors behind the Produced in Kent inspired Create A Fruit & Veg Masterpiece, helped primary school children limber up for entry into the fantastic Kent-wide art competition, when it delivered a van load of locally grown fruit and veg to the children at Loose Infant School, Maidstone on Friday 18 May.

The county-wide art competition is open to all primary school aged children to enter before the deadline on Monday 11 June, and the Produced in Kent competition has been made a reality by the generous sponsorship support of abm Catering, Hadlow College and R J Kingsland & Son as well as funding from the Kent 2012 Small Grants Fund.

The delivery of fresh and locally grown fruit and vegetables by R J Kingsland, saw groups of young children from Year Groups 1 & 2 creating some fabulous sports scene with their fruit and veg, as the 2012 competition takes on an Olympic theme this year.
