My town

My Town – Newquay

by Alex Howarth, 14

I live in Newquay. It’s a small town on the Atlantic coast in the south of England. It has got great beaches and is the best place to surf in the UK. There are lots of surf schools where you can learn how to surf. I go surfing with my friends every weekend. My favourite place is Fistral Beach.

I love Newquay because there are lots of other things to do as well as surfing. If you like water sports, you can go kayaking, water-skiing or coasteering. Coasteering is different because it is rock climbing, jumping into the sea and swimming in the same activity, but you should always go with a special instructor.

If you like animals you can also visit the Blue Reef Aquarium and see lots of different fish and even sharks. You can also go horse riding on the beach or visit Newquay Zoo. There are lots of other attractions too like mini golf and bowling. Come and see for yourself!

My town is very boring.
I don't have coast in my town and you can't hear nothing.
if you're want to something you're need go to town.

I live in Jhelum, near the Pakistan's capital, Islamabad. It is a small town near the banks of river Jhelum. My town is known for it's historical importance. It was the place which witnessed the Battle of Hydaspes. Jhelum is also known for producing a large number of military for the Pakistan armed forces. There are lots of important places to visit such as the Rohtas fort, the Tilla Jogian complex of ancient temples and also the place where Alexander defeated King Porus. People visit these historical places and marvels.
Apart from this, they also enjoy the very peaceful atmosphere of the town.
