Poetry Competition Winner!

March 25, 2021

Over the last two weeks we have been running a poetry competition for local Primary School children in celebration of World Poetry Day which was on Sunday 21st March, and now we have a winner!

Congratulations to Ollie Potter, Age 7, and his school Southdale C of E Juniors, Ossett.  Claire Kendall, was able to surprise Ollie via a video call to his classroom this morning to tell him the good news. He has won a £50 book token for Darling Reads in Horbury for himself, and £250 in book tokens for his school.  Well done Ollie, we hope you have many hours of reading pleasure from your prize, and thank you to Mrs Garnett for letting us interrupt your learning this morning.

Here is Ollie’s poem in full.

Richard Kendall is the best

It’s better than all the rest

Come and take a look around

Have a gander in our town

Always there to lend a hand

Richard Kendall is the best in the land

Doing good for all


Kindness is helping others

Everyone is treated the same, like sisters and brothers

Need a house or flat to rent

Delivering houses, it’s better than living in a tent

All for one, one for all

Love Richard Kendall, you will have a ball

Let’s do this!
