TEN PRIMARY schools across Yate and surrounding areas, were surprised with a visit from CBBC superstar and lead singer of The Odd Socks, Andy Day.

Students between the ages of four and eleven were treated to songs from his popular TV shows, as well as a talk from Andy about the power of wearing odd socks and celebrating our differences.

Each of the ten schools also received a signed copy of Andy’s brand-new book Dino Dad which has only just been released. 

The excitement was all part of a community engagement initiative led by Good Times on the Pitch organiser James Murden.
