The Inaugural Manning's Pit
First Prize, Under 12
|Toby and Theo live
in the house in Pilton that was the home of the
Munro family back in the 1870's when Hector Hugh
Munro (Saki) was a boy. Like him and his brothers
and sisters, they love the countryside nearby, now
known as Manning's Pit.
They wrote these words for us:
"My name is Theo Lawrence and I am 7. I love taking my puppy Louis to Mannings Pit. I love climbing the trees and swimming in the river. In the summer I love having a picnic by the river and lying on my back to watch the clouds. I have always called this Sky TV."
"My name is Toby Lawrence and I am 10. I like going to Mannings Pit with my dog Louis. I like to stand at the top Of the hill and practice my cricket bowling down the hill. I hope that all my trips to Mannings Pit will pay off and I can help my team , Barnstaple and Pilton Cricket club win lots of games this year. "
I see elephants, dragons, racing
Even the odd real plane too.
Manning's is where I sit,
And imagine all the great things
I can do.
