WW1 STORY WINS MP'S COMPETITION

Twelve-year-old Lloyd Mammatt from Princes Gate has won the top prize in a short story competition organized by local MP Simon Hart and supported by Oscar-winning writer Julian Fellowes.

Lloyd is pictured receiving £25 in book tokens for himself and £100 for Ysgol Dyffryn Taf for his story "The Forest." He will also be presented with a certificate signed by the Downton Abbey writer and a tour of the Palace of Westminster.

Mr Hart said: "Lloyd's story really stood out amongst all the entries for its strong imagery and descriptive skills. He was one of the youngest to enter but his storytelling is very powerful."

Lloyd entered his story about a soldier in the trenches in World War One in the competition which was open to any child aged between 11 and 14 at school in Carmarthen West and South Pembrokeshire.

Helen Muskett (pictured right), the librarian at Ysgol Dyffryn Taf, said: "I'd like to buy more revision guides for GCSEs and up-to-date reference books. It is still really important for us to have books alongside the internet for research purposes in the school library."

Also pictured is deputy head teacher Dr Helen Thomas.
