Story-time adventure with storyteller Jane Flood.


FAVOURITE characters from classic fairytales and popular contemporary children’s books came alive during a half-term event.

A host of activities were put on just for youngsters last week during the school holidays, including an interactive storytelling event for parents and children.

Ashcombe Children’s Centre hosted the Story Time Adventures with storyteller Jane Flood, and invited children to come along dressed in pyjamas or onesies for the session.

Despite the wet and windy weather threatening to put a dampener on the day, a magic garden was set up inside to host story time.

After the tale children were treated to games and a supper while parents perused a book sale.
