The day began at Brassington Primary School, Brassington, Matlock, Derbyshire with a presentation on living and working in space to an exited group of young children and staff members. Don also entertained a group of pre-schoolers
and also fielded a Q &A session for parents.
Off then to another Derbyshire school the Longford Church of England Primary School in Longford, Ashbourne, Derbyshire.
Don received another warm welcome from the children and the staff and
entertained and enthralled them with his stories of space travel and life on orbit.
After a brief stop we were headed back to Walsall.
Later that evening Don presented ‘The Day a Woodpecker Attacked the Space Shuttle’ talk to members
of the Walsall Astronomical Society based at the Rushall Olympic Football Club. It was standing room only. The lecture was followed by a Q&A session, book and autograph signing.
