Huge congratulation to ALL of those children who took part in the cross country at Woodfall Primary. Myself and Miss Hudson couldn't be prouder of the effort shown by all the children there. A big thank you also needs to go out to all the parents who supported their children and brought them along on a wet and windy day. We both look forward to doing it all again on the 19th November at Williston Primary.
