Poetry Competition!

We invited entries to celebrate our 10 year anniversary. The winning entry is shown below:




Kitten, Cat, Dog, Rabbit, and many more
Each of us, will always keep you happy
Every day, a smile we see

Play with us and we will be your inspiration


You will never be sad for more than a moment
Our antics will cause you to smile
Up, down, over, under, attack the toy
Run the mad circuit, you will wonder what we’re doing


Perpetual movement, that’s us during the day
Evening a time to settle down beside you
Tomorrow we start again


The winning poem will be published in Your Local Link magazine and may be read out on Radio York. The winner will also receive a £20.00 voucher prize.
