The Big Soup Share    3.10.17

Today we took part in RHS Schools Big Soup Share. Some of our Wild Wooldale Buddies harvested and prepared vegetables which were made into leek and potato soup, which was then shared at lunchtime. They also prepared some freshly baked bread sticks too. It was truly delicious...

Last week six teams of keen Wooldale runners took part in the first round of the Honley and Holmfirth Pyramid Cross Country Competition. There were eight races in total with six of them being competitive. Wooldale won four races and came second in another - well done to all involved, it's a fantastic achievement. George said "It was a bit short but it was really good fun". Five out of our six teams are now through to the second round which will take place at Leeds Road.
