Stafford school children celebrate National Storytelling Week with Lovell Homes and a visit from professional storyteller


Children from St Austin's Catholic Primary in Stafford were invited to visit housebuilder Lovell Homes’ brand new Kings Crest development in Castlefields, where professional storyteller Richard York spent the morning bringing literature to life to mark National Storytelling Week.

One of the stories Richard, a member of the Society for Storytelling, shared with the children was the ‘Twelve Dancing Princesses’ by Alison Jay, which is the inspiration behind one of the rooms in the developments showhomes.

Michele Hoyle, Head of School at St Austin’s Catholic Primary said: “We were delighted to be invited to participate in this event. As well as listening to stories, reading and writing stories are such a big part of our curriculum. It was very exciting to listen to a storyteller in a different setting. Thank you Lovell Homes”

Trish Foster, regional sales director at Lovell Homes said: “We were so pleased to be able to celebrate National Storytelling Week with the children of St Austin’s by inviting them to visit the showhome at Kings Crest to attend a session with a professional storyteller. “Twelve Dancing Princesses was chosen by our interior designers as the ideal theme for a young girl’s bedroom. The Longleat home at Kings Crest is the perfect family home, ideal for families searching for a room each to escape to, and the décor reflects this perfectly. “It was great to see them so engaged in the story that Richard told so well. “We endeavour to support our local communities with local events similar to this and we look forward to continuing our relationship with St Austin’s.”
