We worked with South Downs Storytellers and Lewes Girlguiding to run A Viking Adventure day in March. It included storytelling workshops, creating ink from honey and soot, dyeing skeins of wool, writing riddles and a mega storytelling session around a campfire. Some of the girls won a book for their creative riddles and they really enjoyed the storytelling workshops provided by Jon Mason.
We held a Children's Book Quiz (For Grown-Ups) on Friday 28th September, which was a great success. Congratulations to the winning The Giant Strawberries, who were the winning team and a big thank you to everyone who came along to support the event. Matt Carr was our very entertaining quizmaster, who made sure everything ran smoothly for us. More details to follow soon...
