Budding poets took part in the annual Chesterfield Junior School’s Poetry-Reading Competition.

Staged for the 26th consecutive year by the town’s Rotary Club, the event was hosted by Calow Primary School.

A record 15 contestants took part from five schools. Ten-year-old Christopher Chiad from Hady Primary School was crowned winner with his rendition of Roald Dahl’s poem ‘The Centipede Song’.

Runners-up, also from Hady, were Isobel Woolley with ‘The Adventures of Isobel’ by Ogden Nash and Melissa Moxon with ‘The Visitor’ by Ian Serraillier.

President Mike Cudzich-Madry said: “Taking part in competitions like this will help the youngsters with their communication skills should they choose to go to university in the future.”
