On the evening of Thursday 21st April, some Black Torrington children attended Holsworthy Market to watch the beacon being lit to celebrate HM the Queen's 90th Birthday. Charlie was one of the winners in an art competition and was chosen to light the beacon.
"A guy called Ray gave us poles and then lit the ends with a flame thrower, we put the poles onto the hay which caught fire and made the wood burn, the fire was very high. Some sparks from the fire made the grass catch fire and the fire brigade had to come and put it out" said Charlie.

Our Charity for 2014-2015 was
School in a Bag (SIAB)
This charity was chosen by the children. It is run by the Simon Piers Appeal raising money for displaced and underprivileged children. Providing them with all the items needed to go to school including stationary, pens, maths equipment, water bottles, sporks and torches, all inside a back pack.
The final amount raised was £347.83
This was enough for every child to be able to pack a bag.
The charity organisers and Holsworthy Rotary Club brought bags and items to school and helped the children to pack a bag each. We will be able to track the bags to find out where in the world they will go.
