Clinton Primary School made a strong showing at the annual Small Schools Cross Country meeting last Friday. Though the ground was still wet, ideal weather had been selected out of an otherwise miserable week and while Clinton hosted the event, the local pupils trained on school grounds, not the interschool course.

Off to a good start . . . The year 5 boys were raring to go.
