There was great excitement at Willowcroft when an unexpected celebrity visitor dropped into the school unannounced. Mrs Doy and Miss Bird, had sent David Walliams a message on twitter asking (begging) him to visit Willowcroft, as he was filming at the train station. Just before lunch on Thursday 20th September the school received a phone call from his agent to say David would be with us in ten minutes. After a frantic round up of all the school in the courtyard David arrived. He answered questions about his books and encouraged children to read at home. He then read a chapter from his book 'Gangster Granny'.
