A Buxton student has been named winner of the Buxton Poetry Competition youth category.

The theme for this year’s competition was the natural world and Katie Marrow, a year nine pupil at St Thomas More School, impressed the judges with her poem River about Lathkill Dale.

She was presented with her award by Lady Jasmine Cavendish at a special reception held at Buxton Museum earlier this month.
