Primary school pupils take the stage for poetry evening

More than 200 children from across the Royal Borough have been given the chance to show off their writing and performing skills at the Magnet Leisure Centre in Maidenhead.

Youngsters from four primary schools presented poems on the theme of A Walk in the Woods at the centre in Holmanleaze on Thursday, November 28.

The words were mixed with music, acting and props for an audience which included the Deputy Mayoress, Margaret Lenton.

The children have been receiving visits from local poet Coral Rumble, who helps pupils produce and publish poems thanks to an annual grant from the Rotary Club of Maidenhead Thames.

Club president Steve Harrington said: "This is the 15th year we have sponsored this event and it was good to see the children perform with such confidence.

"We plan to do it again next year with another four schools."

The schools taking part were Knowl Hill Primary School, Cookham Dean Primary School, St Francis Primary School and St Mary's Catholic Primary School.
