SEPTEMBER can be an emotional time for many parents in the town.

Knowing your little one will soon be setting off for their first day at school can make anyone shed a tiny tear.

But one Great Sankey mum has put pen to paper to write a touching poem before her youngest son starts school at Barrow Hall Primary for the first time.

Tanya McCrave added: "I don't normally write poems but late one night I sat up writing one for my second little boy Leo before he starts school.

"His big brother Oscar is going to be in year two and will hopefully help settle Leo in.

"I thought it would be nice to share with all those parents in the same situation as it can be a tough time."
