COUNTRYFILE presenter and former Newsround legend John Craven came to Marlow this week as the guest speaker at a charity lunch.

He attended the Macmillan Cancer Support lunch at Macdonald Compleat Angler Hotel on Tuesday, before speaking about his life and career following a meal in the hotel’s newly refurbished Riverside Restaurant.

The popular TV personality, who presented over 3,000 editions of Newsround after launching it in 1972, stayed behind to talk to fans and sign copies of his latest book.
