with a difference
Christmas Story time craft fair has been organised by Mossley Hill
The free event will take place on Saturday, 10 December 2016, from 10am to noon, at SARA
Hall, in Rundle Road.
As well as stalls and refreshments there will be a chance for children to create
their own story box to fire their imagination.
A story box is something children can use to keep objects in to inspire stories
of their own at bedtime. Parents can also put objects in the box for story time
Councillor Emily Spurrell said:- "This event is our latest story time event
but with a festive twist. We know how much our local families enjoy the reading
activities but this time we have combined it a Christmas market so parents can
visit some local craft stalls."
Storyteller from Little Lamb Tales Jude Lennon said:- 'I'm really pleased
to be able to support this event. A story box is an imaginative way of
encouraging children to read. All the children who make a story box at the fair
will also be making a couple of objects to put in it to take away with them.
It's a great way to promote creativity and reading."
Stalls confirmed to date are:- Pitter Patter Tiny Feet - knitted and crocheted
goods; Young at Heart - Christmas decorations; Caroline White ? crafts; Phoenix
cards - Christmas cards, gift wrap etc Marmalade Skies ? home-made
cakes/biscuits and Jo Howarth - Mindfulness Books for adults, calendars.
And of course, Father Christmas will be on hand to give out presents.
