What a day for Cambridge Children's Press Pack!

Since last summer, Cambridge Children's Press Pack have become an integral part of our communications team and, indeed, our project. Cambridgeshire County Day was no different.

This is seventeen-year-old Sarah's account of a very 'momentous day', with a stage appearance, media interviews, and a Royal visit!
