Hi there Chipsters, welcome to this week’s Chipper Club page!

As you know, this is your spot in the paper, the place for you to share all the exciting things you’ve been up to with your fellow club members.

Chipster 394, George Houkes, has been in touch.

Seven-year-old George, from Waterlooville, wanted to share his amazing collection of footballer figures with the rest of the club – here he is taking pride of place on today’s page.

‘I wanted to show you my footballers’ collection,’ wrote George.

‘I had great fun collecting them.

‘I love football and I play for the under-8s team in Denmead.

‘My favourite team is Manchester United, my favourite footballer is Wayne Rooney.’

Well George, I can’t claim to know a lot about football, but your old pal Chipper does love chasing balls around the park!

Are you like George and do you have a favourite thing that you enjoy collecting?

Perhaps you’ve built up a brilliant collection of stickers, or have the most amazing selection of badges.

Whatever your passion, get in touch and tell me and the rest of the Chipper Club members all about it.

One last reminder, don’t forget to enter this week’s great competition – I’m sure you Ben 10 fans will be pretty pleased with today’s offering.

That’s all I’ve got time for today my friends, so until next Saturday I’ll say chip chip for now!

Love Chipper x
