Eight members of the Language Explorers Club at Springmead School, Beckington, entered a writing competition run by Frome Rotary Club.

They explored ideas through drama and writing based on the subject of a life-changing event, and spent time planning, writing and editing stories.

The school was proud of all the competitors and delighted that Abby Sparrow came third, Arabella Goff second and Peggy Sparrow first.

Peggy’s entry was submitted to the South West regional finals, where her mature and thought provoking writing won third place.
