AN INDIAN summer could be in store for an 11-year-old girl who beat off stiff competition to make it through to the final round of auditions for a TV show.

Emily Fox, from Harpenden High Street, was one of 60 finalists whittled down from around 1,500 entrants competing for a place on the CBBC game show Raven.

The St George's School pupil was flown to Scotland for a weekend of testing challenges and she will find out within the next few days whether she will be awarded one of 20 places.

The filming for Raven normally takes place in a medieval setting in Scotland but, if she is successful, Emily will be travelling to India during the summer holidays for a special edition of the show.

The production has children aged 11 to 13 divided up into teams which have to compete in a mixture of physical and mental challenges.

Emily is no stranger to physical endurance - she is sports captain for her year and is involved in a range of sports including cross-country, athletics and netball.

Recently we, as a family (minus two of the kids), visited The Lodge RSPB reserve in Sandy, Bedfordshire. I had never been before, which is perhaps amiss of me as a birdwatcher as it is the headquarters of the Royal Society for the Protection of Birds or RSPB and only 45 minutes drive from home.
