OTLEY schoolchildren have been presented with a special flower to remind them of the value of peace.

The President of the Inner Wheel Club of Otley Chevin, Jennifer Angus, visited Ashfield and Otley All Saints C of E primary schools in September to mark World Peace Day.

Mrs Angus used the opportunity to talk about peace and how we can all help bring it into our lives - and how Inner Wheel works to promote friendship and international understanding.

She ended her visits by presenting a Peace rose to each school to be planted and nurtured in their grounds.
