The finest young orators in Cranleigh have taken part in a public speaking contest.
Organised by The Rotary Club of Cranleigh, the Youth Speaks competition at Cranleigh School on 22nd January featured seven teams from Glebelands School, Duke of Kent School and Cranleigh School, with four entries in the intermediate competition and three in the seniors.
A team from Glebelands won the intermediate category, speaking on 'The Tangled Web.' The team comprised chairman Hannah, speaker Jade and Hannah as proposer of vote of thanks.
The team will now compete in the semi-final at the University of Surrey.
This year's adjudicators were Celia Stanton, a former deputy headteacher at Farlington School, Andrew Clark, headteacher at Park Mead Primary School and the Reverend Roy Waters, deacon at Jesus Christ Redeemer of Mankind Catholic Church.
Heat organiser Michael Hart said: "The subjects were most interesting and varied. The judges were impressed with the standard of the presentations and had a very difficult time in deciding the winners."
