When our members Philip and Lynne Hickin visited Parklands Primary School last December together with ‘Grandad Wheels’, Lynne drew a quick sketch portrait of head teacher Chris Dyson and now it is in his new book!
Dyson had been one of the strongest supporters of the Grandad Wheels books and so when the fourth Grandad Wheels book ‘Grandad in the Grotto’ was published, a visit was arranged to Parklands. Lynne presented him with a portrait as a ‘thank you’ for all his support.
Now Chris Dyson has written his own book ‘Parklands: A School built on Love’ about the transformation of the school he took over nine years ago. Lynne’s sketch appears in the book which will be available at the end of the month.

One of the Parklands children also drew the portrait of Lynne, from the photo in her biography in the first Grandad Wheels book!
