MEDAL WINNERS - Green Howarth.

FIVE determined pupils from Green Haworth Primary School bent over backwards to win a competition.

The event was held to select a team to represent Hyndburn in the Lancashire Youth Games on Saturday 19 June at Salt Ayre Sports Centre and Lancaster and Morcambe College.

Aimed at novices in years 3 and 4, the competition was organised by Hyndburn Borough Council's Sport and Community Development Team and was staged at the New Era complex. Two teams entered from Rishton Methodist Primary and a team from Green Haworth. Participants had to perform a one minute routine which contributed to a team score to determine who won gold, silver and bronze medals.

Green Haworth's headteacher Mrs Irene Wensley said: "We are always very proud of our pupils and we are doubly delighted as we are quite a small school. They did well."
