Pinner born writer Michael Rosen has been recognised with a national award for his valuable work as a children’s author.

Michael Rosen was awarded the Action for Children’s Arts (ACA) J.M.Barrie Award in a virtual ceremony on November 11, in recognition of a lifetime spent delighting and inspiring children and young people

The winner of the award is selected annually by the Trustees of ACA. Chair Vicky Ireland MBE said: “This award recognises Michael as a hugely talented and popular writer, and also as an outspoken supporter of Action for Children’s Arts and of all we stand for with regard to so many things – especially the need for creativity and expressive arts in schools.

“After Michael’s battle with COVID-19 last year, we are lucky to still have him with us, and believe this is a brilliant chance to celebrate his achievements and say thank you for his constant courage in speaking publicly for the sector.”

The 74-year-old author, former Poet Laureate and broadcaster attended Pinner Wood School and West Lodge and lived on Bridge Street and later Love Lane until he was 17 years old.
