Croydon Guardian:

10:18pm Saturday 25th October 2014

Typically renowned as being dull and dreary, Durham is rarely viewed as a popular holiday destination for young people.

Movies that changed my life!

8:35pm Saturday 25th October 2014

Have you ever watched a movie and after it had finished the narrative stuck on your mind like chewing gum on the bottom of one of your best shoes?

It’s one of those rare moments that I watch a film and it has a massive impact on my life. Two of Will Smith’s movies (both also directed by Gabriele Muccino) called Seven Pounds and Pursuit of Happyness has both had an effect on me – either if it was positive or negative – it still had an effect in both ways.

Ruth Park, Raynes Park High School. Have you ever wondered what it is like, living with a single parent? Persevering through the hardest times, suffering alone just to make us happy is what my mother did. This has left me with more care and support than I would have received if I had two parents.
