Bishop Winnington Ingram Primary School pupils continued their tradition of taking part in an annual Ruislip Lions Peace poster competition. Ruislip Manor library have always been most welcoming and this gives the young people a chance of having their entries seen by a much larger audience than normal.

The Leader of Hillingdon Council Cllr Ray Puddifoot with local MP Boris Johnson view the the Bagatelle table top game, which the club took to the library. They are seen here with the President of the club Phyllis and Chair of Services committee Fred. This turned out to be a very popular game with young people who enjoyed the hands on game as opposed to their normal virtual experience with phones and tablets. Children and their parents from Newnham and Lady Banks Schools loved the non-techno bagatelle, “once you start on this game you don’t want to stop, you just want to keep raising your score” was the comment from one pupil, and it helps with mental arithmetic – this could be a Christmas stocking winner………. and not a mobile phone in site!!
