yum – thanks Mrs S.

As it was Emma Simpson’s birthday – her mum very kindly baked us some speciality cakes!!!  And they were delicious.

 

 

 

There were some pleasing results all round.

A great achievement for the AGGS athletes to get both teams to the A Final, competing against the best teams from Greater Manchester, Lancashire, Cumbria, Merseyside and Cheshire.

The Inters finished 9th overall, but scored more points than in the qualifying County round.  The Juniors finished in 6th place.

Well done – a very enjoyable, successful day.
