The lead character from my New Forest Friends children's books is called Beaulieu the Hedgehog and, when the first book was released, children from Beaulieu Infants School attended the launch by being driven in a Rolls Royce Silver Ghost kindly supplied by the National Motor Museum, also at Beaulieu. So when I was asked earlier in the year by Jane Noble, the headteacher of Beaulieu Infants School, to submit designs for the new school logo I was happy to oblige.
Fortunately for me the staff and governors opted for my design and it has now been adopted by the school.
John Hawkins, the Chair of Governors, said: "I would like to thank you very much for all the work that you put in on the new school logo, it was much appreciated. The result was excellent and it looks great on the new sign outside the school."
It was a pleasure to give something back to a school who so kindly donated time and effort to support me and my first book all those years ago.
