Author and stand-up comedian James Campbell visited a Fenland secondary school to entertain students and explain how he became a writer.
James Campbell was at Cromwell Community College in Chatteris, yesterday to speak to Year 7 students.
Resource centre assistant Suzie Dixon said: “He spent all day with us here at Cromwell and spoke to all of Year 7 in groups throughout the day.
“James has previously visited Cromwell and held an assembly with our Year 8 students. He also met several of our students whilst working with Chatteris Library.
“He kept all of the students entertained with his crazy humour and explained how he became an author. There was plenty of laughter and lots of questions asked by the students.”
