THREE youngsters from Newton-le-Willows Community High School are the talk of the town after reaching the regional final of a Public Speaking competition.

Lisa Molyneux, Kim Whittle and Michelle Cunneely will take part in the final at Bury Town Hall on Thursday, March 8, after coming second in the zone section held at Statham Lodge.

On the way to the final the girls had to speak about a topic of their choice as well as facing up to some difficult questions.
