I thought your school might be interested in a free exhibition of my children's book illustrations at Calne Heritage Centre, SN11 0SQ. Open 10am - 4pm, Wednesday - Saturday, 5th-29th October, the show features mainly prints of my watercolour illustrations for 'The Wind in the Willows', however there are original paintings and plenty of cards and books to have a look at too.
As part of the Calne Music & Arts Festival, I will also be giving a free talk, answering questions and signing books from 10am-12pm, Saturday 15th October at Marden House, SN11 0JJ (opposite the Heritage Centre).
This September we have launched our 11 week online wellbeing club for young people aged between 7 and 12, the online wellbeing club is based on the five steps to mental well being and uses fun and interactive activities to teach the young people about how to look after themselves.

An update from Wiltshire Treehouse,
Wiltshire Treehouse remains open & accepting referrals during the summer break. Parents and carers can self-refer using the form on our website, where they can also find out more about the services we offer.
Could you help us? As a charity it is becoming increasingly hard to fundraise, and so we ask for your help, have some fun and join our fundraising campaigns:
A Week to Remember
We will be holding our first Wiltshire Treehouse ‘A Week to Remember’ event from Monday 19th to Sunday 25th September to raise funds to help us continue our much-needed work. We are asking individuals or teams of any age to fundraise or undertake sponsorship challenges during the week, ended with a celebratory event for all involved on the Sunday. We will also have awards for the most unique idea, amount raised etc. Please see www.wiltshiretreehouse.org.uk/wk2r for further information and to sign up. It would also be a great help if you could display or share the attached poster to help raise awareness.
Could you have a non-uniform day for a donation? Hold a coffee/Tea morning? Or why not try an enterprise project for your class? However, you can fundraise, every penny will go back to support bereaved children & young people living within Swindon & Wiltshire.
What can we do for you? Training
