Valerie Singleton with Radio Scilly presenter Keri Jones

Iconic TV and radio presenter Valerie Singleton is in Scilly to write a travel article about the islands.

The broadcaster, who became a household name as a Blue Peter presenter, is producing a four-page spread on Scilly holidays for the GEM motorist assist magazine.

The membership organisation is similar to the AA or RAC.

The Islands’ Partnership have helped with arrangements and during her week-long stay, Valerie will visit Bryher, Tresco, St Agnes and St Mary’s.

She’s walked around our largest island, visited Phoenix Arts and the Kaffeehaus and before she leaves, she’ll be given a tour of the Holy Vale vineyard by Star Castle owner Robert Francis.

Valerie says that her article will showcase the variety found in a Scilly holiday.
