News talk

THE atmosphere was quiet in the Hasland Hall Conference room.

All you could hear was the rustle of Bethany’s crisp packet as Nicola Megson, Group Editor of the Derbyshire Times, began to answer the children’s questions.

The school’s newspaper group sat spellbound through an entire lunch time as Nicola gave us advice for improving our journalistic style.

Nicola told us moving and funny stories during her life in journalism.

Nicola has made a new project called ‘I’m Inspired’ and told us she wanted schools to write positive stories about events at their school.

Members of Hasland Hall newspaper club were truly inspired
