Tuesday 9th February – Funny man, my Bro joined me this morning - Not Christine Darby...

As well as being entertained by my little bro I spoke to Jeremy Strong, award winning Children's Author about the importance of reading to children at night before they go to sleep.

Children aged 7-12 with a passion for penmanship should enter their own bedtime story, about Silentnight’s iconic duo – Hippo and Duck, for the chance to see their masterpiece illustrated and published.

The winner will also receive a family stay at Alton Towers, Silentnight Chill-Out or My First Bed, many Bloomsbury goodies and will have their book published.

In addition, the final 10 best stories will be read and recorded by Jeremy Strong, which will be available to be downloaded from

9 Runners up will also receive a Silentnight Chill-Out bed and Bloomsbury goodies.

So start writing your very own “once upon a time…” and “In a place far far away….” for your chance to create your very own “happily ever after!”

The deadline for entries is the 30th April 2010...don't hesitate get creative over half term!

On the theme of reading 11 to 14 year olds are being encouraged to read at local school the Ursuline with visits from Contemporary Authors at the Library. The school is also supporting the Essex Book Award. Secondary school students are encouraged to write reviews on any of the 6 newly published books on the shortlist and post them on and then vote for their favourite later this month


As well as Pop stars making a charity single, which is already doing very well in its first week, Local Air Cadets packed trolleys at Sainsbury's raising £1482 for the Haiti Earthquake appeal.
