Lots drawn to prevent dog fight

No complications when Northam pets go to school

Children at Northam County Primary school drew lots last week to prevent a fight – a dog fight in fact!

The children were invited to take their pets to school, the visit to coincide with the launching of a branch of the Panda Club – a junior section of the World Wild Life Youth Service – at the school.
