Over the last week I have received 4 more donations taking me over my £50 target, thank you to everyone who sponsored me. I have solved five codes, so half-way there with the code breaking.   Only 15 more miles to go for the cycle, however I need to do it in the next 4 days, so fingers crossed.  Henry A

Freddie ended his time at Lockerley primary school on 22 July after a wonderful 7 years.  Year 6 enjoyed a leavers' service at St John's Church, reflecting on their time at the School and presenting their happy memories.    Freddie was awarded the Coomer prize for: 'sportsmanship, fair play and helping others; a real winner no matter the score '.

The year 6 children left school passing through a socially distanced archway of the younger years.  Parents decorated cars for the leavers who were waved off by staff and younger children and parents.  Freddie now looks forward to starting Test Valley School in September.   Anna A

Fairtrade have produced a new climate video to show what life is like for Fairtrade farmers on the frontline of the climate crisis and how they are working hard to win a better future for us all. It really is worth a watch. https://action.fairtrade.org.uk/page/64849/petition/1
