Kids Connect Campaign blogs
Four youngsters write an online diary to about what life’s like growing up in the countryside. Read their news – and post your own comments.
Latest from the blogs…
- “My sister, who has an obsession with pigs, wants one of the piglets when they are born but my mum said they would dig up the garden and eventually have to be sold for pork. This, my sister took as a no.”
Emily Baker, 12, Buckinghamshire
- “My auntie and cousin were staying with us this week, so for a change I went for a walk in the Cairngorms one afternoon with them and to brighten it up a bit we went grass sledging in Aviemore afterwards.
It was great fun. I wish I had a grass sledge, and then I could go sledging in the summer as well as winter!”
Craig MacKenzie, 13, Inverness-shire
- “I like the pigs when they first come because they are only three weeks old and weigh about 7kgs so they are really small and cute, but when they are ready to go they are really big and ugly and weigh 100kgs.”
Martha Corney, 10, North Yorkshire
