STUDENTS from The Moorlands Sixth Form College have been preparing for a major debut.

Youngsters from the college in Cheadle will be taking part in this year's Edinburgh Fringe Festival.

And the college students have run a competition for young writers to also be a part of the experience. A college spokesman said: "The students' preparations have a wonderful twist. They wanted to perform a piece for children/young people and where better to resource a story, that could then be worked into a script, than to find one written by a young person."

The students set up a competition among local schools and the winners were announced last week at a special event at the neighbouring Cheadle Academy. Winner Rhiannon Hollies, aged 12, is from The Cheadle Academy, while runners up are from The Cheadle Academy and Cheadle Primary School. Vulcan Refractories have donated £250 to help meet their living costs for the students while they are at the fringe.
