Year Six pupils from around Trowbridge debated their favourite places and organisations in a public speaking event at the Town Hall.

Primary schools that took part in the Little Bloomers competition last Wednesday, organised by Trowbridge in Bloom, included West Ashton, The Mead, Walwayne Court, Grove and North Bradley.

The winning school was Walwayne, with Grove pupil Olivia Hampton, 11, victorious in the best individual speaker category.

Jennifer Polledri, the Trowbridge in Bloom chairman, said: “Students spoke either about their favourite local place or an organisation they belonged to and the ways in which either of these could be improved for the benefit of the local community.”
