BOURNE Abbey Primary and Moulton John Harrox were the big winners as Crowland’s Snowden Field hosted a year three and four cross country festival.

The Bourne school finished in first place in the girls’ category, with Harrox topping the charts in the boys’ race.

Amongst the small primary schools, Weston Hills won the girls’ race and Fleet Wood Lane took honours in the boys’ section.

But Calypso Priestley from Ayscoughfee Hall was the individual winner of the girls’ event, while Alfie Fox from Langtoft was the first boy home.

In the fun run, Megan Wilson (Moulton John Harrox) and James Clark (Weston Hills) were the winners.

The event – run in conjunction with Nene Valley Harriers – was the first of many festival organised by the region’s school games organiser Rupert Gibson, from Agilitas Sports Ltd, as part of the nation’s build up to London 2012.

Gibson thanks Russ Prosser and the other members of Nene Valley who gave up their time, as well as Nigel Kirtland and the students from the University Academy Holbeach who manned the course, and Spalding High School, who fund the school games organiser post.
