William Trow

Seed Special in partnership with Stokesley School, North Yorkshire: It was quite a marvellous day, which was unusual for that time of the year. I remember my father had given us the ball to play with, to keep us busy. Being the eldest, I got to choose what game we played. Naturally, we played football. I think I would have won that match if I had not been distracted by the sight of the ruins just over the wall by where we were playing. My father told me I should never explore, but on that day, I was feeling curious. -- A big thank you to Mr Adams from Stokesley School's English Department for inspiring his Creative Writing Club students to contribute to Seed.
