Skipping is something anybody can do anywhere and it gives children opportunities to get involved in an event when they may not normally get a chance as they do not always have the parental support available. St Peter's is a great example of what can be achieved if the children practice.' He would like to congratulate Mrs Day who runs the lunchtime skipping club at St Peter's for her success and looks forward to seeing them competing next year to keep their trophies.
