Well here we are in Doncaster. We’ve come north to South Yorkshire to spread the word about Rolo’s Secret Adventures, invited by the Doncaster Book Awards, and hopefully we are inspiring school children to write their own fantasy stories. Today we visited Owston Park primary, Hexthorpe and Hayfield Lane. Tomorrow it’s Mexborough, Barnburgh Primary and Scawsby Saltersgate and Thursday it’s Crookesbroom and Long Toft.

I don’t know how Rolo feels about sharing a room with me, but I find myself shushing him quite a few times in the night as he can hear movement in other rooms around where we are staying and he is very protective of me. I’m sure no-one wants to hear from him in the night! We’ve had some lovely walks around Lakeside and found the old Doncaster airfield (now a museum.) Delicious soup for lunch in the Dell Cafe on the edge of the beautiful Hexthorpe Park. Talking to a local, I discovered that the park used to be a popular wedding venue in the 1950s. What I love about Doncaster is how friendly everyone is. I’ve spoken to many people (Rolo is a bit of a magnet!) and we feel very welcome here.
