Last Friday turned out to be a rather special day when I turned up at the Just Imagine Story Centre in Chelmsford and, at last, met their Director, the lovely Nikki Gamble. Having so much to do with writing and reading groups, mainly in the adult arena, it was a great pleasure (and surprise) to learn more about what is going on in children's publications.
Nikki's Centre, which is so accessible right in the centre of our county town at 64-68 New London Road, was buzzing, not only with children choosing books, but with the prospect of upcoming events across August and September aimed at children (and adults). I love the idea of Nikki's Horrid Henry Fun Day scheduled for Monday, 29 August 11.00-4.00pm. Sounds fun! Do pay a visit and check out Nikki's website at http://www.justimaginestorycentre.co.uk/
