PRIMARY school pupils across the borough have taken party in a poetry competition to raise awareness about weather and light issues at this time of year.
During autumn pupils were invited to take part in a Raincoat poetry competition run by Thurrock Council’s road safety team.
They were asked to say how much fun they can have splashing in puddles and how dry they stay when their under an umbrella or how much they hate the gloomy mornings.
Two lucky winners from Thameside Primary School in Manor Road, Grays received fluorescent and reflective raincoats as prizes.
During a school assembly Anila Ceshmexhiu and Agreem Limbu were presented with their prizes by a member of the road safety team and their finished poems will be on display in the school.
