On Saturday 11th March the Hub was very proud to host the “Festival of Stories”. This is a fantastic event, run by Talking Together in Cambridgeshire, who aim to increase the awareness, knowledge and understanding of our communities in how to support young children’s communication, language, and literacy development.
Marion Leeper, a wonderful storyteller, set up a sensory extravaganza in our Austen Room, with 20 children attending to hear a magical story about bees and how they help us. The children could participate in the story, used instruments to make some wonderful sounds, and even made their own bees out of dusters!
The children were rapt, and all of them took away their very own bee books – and a few other special gifts – at the end of the event. What a great way for children to start the weekend.
We at the Hub are very grateful to Jacey Stewart for all she did to organise this event, to Marion Leeper for her storytelling and to Talking Together in Cambridgeshire for bringing this special event to our community. Thank you!
