BUDDING journalists at Thriplow Primary School have gone to press with the latest edition of the school's magazine.
The Thriplow Times was first produced by the school's writing club in 1999.
The 21st issue went on sale in time for this year's Thriplow Daffodil Festival.
Writing club co-ordinator Susan van der Ven said: "The writing club meets once a week, and it's a really good opportunity for the children to build their confidence.
