Magical transformation of Rotherham
CHILDREN went potty for the magic and mayhem of a family fun day with more than a hint of Hogwarts.
The latest event in Rotherham’s A Slice of Summer Fun series took place in All Saints’ Square on Wednesday, with families invited into the weird and wonderful activities conjured up by the town’s own literacy charity, Grimm and Co.
Actor Paul Clayton and entertainer Wizzo the Wizard were among those making an appearance, while the Advertiser’s own Dave Doyle manned a Grimm and Co stall offering macabre and magical gifts.
He is also one of Grimm and Co’s celebrity patrons and a native of Rotherham.
“I’m impressed. I come from Rotherham and I remember the centre of it being quite lively until all the shops moved away.
“It makes me very proud to come from Rotherham.”
Children also took the chance to get crafty and take a ride on a miniature steam railway.
Mia-Rose Tidmarsh (9), of Elton Lane, Woodlaithes, said: “We went in the Grimm and Co shop, found out about Grimm and Co, borrowed books and got magical soaps.
