IT was lovely to see the two great photos and write-ups of local youngsters taking on challenging events (Journal, July 23) – the Bowbrook House boys and girls raising £880 for Worcestershire's new breast unit with their 'gunge run' and the Evesham Junior Rowing Squad's successes on the River Taff.

On a different tack, congratulations to Stuart Homer and his team cracking on so well with the renovation of the old working men's club. It's looking very good.
