Membury pupils are in our newsroom!

Children learning about how to produce a newspaper.

JUNIOR pupils from Membury Primary School, near Axminster, are today (Friday) visiting the Midweek Herald newsroom at Exeter Airport.

Teacher Chris I’Anson is leading a party of 13 children. The pupils are to contribute to a school newspaper as part of their literacy studies.

Lydia Hartnell, 11, said: “Your office is not as big as i thought it would be. I thought the printing press would be here.”

The children are watching as this story is uploaded to the website.
