Wanderers leave it late to overcome a resilient Crowborough side in the final league match. Arek Arkadiusz returned to Wanderers second row and in a reshuffled back line Peter Macaulay was at ten with Nick Herbert replacing the unavailable Jay Morbey at outside centre.

Joshua, one of our new Young Reporters reviews the book “The Magic Misfits” by Neil Patrick Harris

My name is Joshua, I am 9 years old. At the beginning of March I found out about the Harvey Hext Trust – A Sibling’s Wish, a charity which gives personalised memory boxes and ‘Harvey Bears’ to children who have lost a brother or sister.

So far I am on the 10th book and have raised £142. To help one child costs them £200...
