First Elderflower Harvest at Pioneer!

Monday 04 July 2022

Members of 8 Hawking celebrated the summer solstice by foraging flowers from the many elder trees that flourish around the school grounds. These creamy white blossoms were then steeped in sugar syrup to make Ark Pioneer’s first ever batch of elderflower cordial. Students and staff enjoyed this traditionally English summertime drink, whose refreshing flavour was made all the sweeter for having been handcrafted with the school’s very own bounty of flowers. If you would like to taste the cordial, a few special bottles will be available as prizes to win at the Summer Fayre on Wednesday 20th July.
