The first in what might be a one-item series spotting stories about Peter Skellern in the papers.
The Henley Standard is perhaps overgenerous in calling Skellern a "70s pop idol" - I think even Skellern himself would suggest his appeal wasn't that of an Osmond or a Bolan - but the story is quite a sweet one:
CHILDREN at a Wargrave theatre school have had a song written for them by a Seventies pop star.Okay, it's stretching the truth a little to even call that a story, but as 'things that fill papers up' go, it's a nice little thought, isn't it?
Kate Skellern, 36, founded the Skellern School of Speech and Drama a year ago to teach stagecraft to six- to 12-year-olds.
Ms Skellern, of Clifton Rise, Wargrave, is the daughter of Peter Skellern, 62, who had hits with You're A Lady and Hold On To Love more than 30 years ago. He is now retired and lives in Cornwall.
Ms Skellern said: "My dad has written a song especially for the young children who will be attending our new classes. It doesn't really have a title but we call it the hello song."
