This evening I met with the Rt Hon Lord Patten of Barnes (last Governor of Hong Kong and now Chairman of the BBC Trust and Chancellor of Oxford University) at his offices near the Houses of Parliament to give him some signed copies of The Tale of Pin Yin Panda for his eight grandchildren! Lord Patten was kind enough to write a lovely blurb about Pin Yin Panda for the back of the book in which he mentioned his grandchildren, so naturally I wanted to give them all a copy! We had a lovely chat about his memories of Hong Kong and his recent visit there with his extended family, and he told me that his time in Hong Kong as Governor was one of the happiest times of his life. A big thank you to Lord Patten for his time and to his very kind parliamentary secretary Penelope Rankin for arranging our meeting!
