AN ENERGETIC bunch of pupils from a school in Belper are members of a golden club.

Daniel Hodgkinson, Sam Boyall, Luke Green, Harry Brown and Jack Kew are all members of the running club at Herbert Strutt Primary, on Thornhill Avenue.

And they recently achieved a remarkable milestone in completing 50 miles.

A spokeswoman for the school said: “We have a running club every week and the children run as many times as they can round the school. Five of the children completed 50 golden miles and have joined the Golden Mile Club.

“It is quite a milestone really.”

The school is also celebrating a remarkable attendance record from the last school year — 96.51 per cent.

A spokeswoman said: “It shows us that the children enjoy coming to Strutts and that they are happy at the school.”
