Takeover Day

21st November 2014

Simon Grundy in the morning

Here’s what you missed........

Today is the Children’s Commissioner’s Takeover Day where over a million children across the country spend the day in a working environment, so if you tuned in and thought you were listening to The Ben and Leah Show, then you were!! Simon and I were joined by 10 year olds Ben Foster from Southwick Primary and Leah Rathbone from Hudson Road Primary and they were absolutely brilliant! They were reading out news stories, showbiz stories, back announcing songs and getting involved in all the competitions. They did an amazing job and we thoroughly enjoyed working with them. Thank you Ben and Leah, we know who'll be filling in for us next time Simon and I fancy a day off!

Today was your last chance to win book vouchers to celebrate the Northern Children’s Book Festival coming to Sunderland tomorrow. All week I’ve been reading out extracts of classic children’s books and seeing as we were joined by Ben and Leah this morning, Ben did a fantastic job of reading an extract from my favourite book ‘Harry Potter and The Philosopher's Stone’.

If you get a chance, pop down to Peterlee tonight for the Castledene Christmas Light Switch On. Simon and I will be joined by singers, dancers, and Kerrianne Covell from the X Factor. Seeing as it’s Takeover Day, we’re giving the important task of turning on the lights to 3 lucky Peterlee school kids who are going to be treated like VIPs!

Finally, don’t forget to tune in on Monday when we’ll be joined by TAKE THAT!!!!!! I can't wait.
