A magical moment is a special event that you experienced in your life. It could be funny, thoughtful, simple or heroic, but what matters is that special feeling you experienced. I look forward to hearing and sharing your magic moments.


The children of Annesley Primary School (Key Stage 2) have helped out the local community this week by planting hedges at Acacia Park.

The school have taken an active part in trying to improve the safety and aesthetic look of the park by helping the council plan the play area and plant hedges.

It was a fun filled muddy morning, take a look at some of the photographs.
