We've had a look at the paper and the children were 'well impressed'. It has been a very rewarding experience. Thanks for your speedy work! We were extremely impressed by the standard of the production. The children had a thoroughly enjoyable morning and appreciate the hard work, care and dedication needed to turn stories into a finished paper.
Many thanks for your input.
