GLENN Hoddle spent the afternoon at Crowthorne Library today (Wednesday), giving out prizes to schoolchildren who have produced all kinds of artwork about tackling bullying.

As part of a competition run by Bracknell Forest Council for Anti-Bullying Week, November 19-23, hundreds of youngsters submitted drawings, videos, songs and crafts - all surrounding the strapline 'We're Better Without Bullying'.

The winning work was showcased at the High Street library and the former England footballer and manager was there to shake the hands of the winners and present them with certificates.

The 55-year-old said: "Bullying is a really big social issue for youngsters and the awareness of it needs to be brought out."

For more on this story see the Bracknell & Wokingham Midweek, delivered free next Wednesday.
