A community club said it was impressed by the fantastic creative writing skills of schoolchildren in the Cheddar Valley.

Students from the area were asked to write about ‘tomorrow’ for the Mendip Rotary’s Young Writers competition.

The club received a large number of nominations from students of all ages.

Junior section winner Maddie Rousell, aged nine, impressed judges with her ‘clear structure’ and ‘great imagination’.

Rotarian Howard Darkin said: “The standard of all the entries was very high, and the maturity shown by these young people in their creative writing was quite amazing.”
