Hi, my name is Rachel.  I look after this part of Youth-Net. If you have any ideas or comments, send an email to coi@sunderland.gov.uk

I'm also running a little riddle of sorts - prize is only bragging rights but if you ask nicely I might give you a (virtual) bar of chocolate.

Here's the riddle then (be warned, it's very hard!)

Two legs comes in with one leg,

Places one leg on three legs,

Two legs leaves, four legs enters and picks up one leg

Two legs return and throw three legs at four legs

Four legs drops one leg and two legs gets one leg back.

Send answers into the email address above.
