MP story time

Lynne Featherstone, Lib Dem MP for Hornsey & Wood Green, has shown her enthusiastic support for National Story Telling week by telling a short story to a small group of St. Mary’s Junior School Children.

She says:

“As the digital revolution continues relentlessly around us, it’s often forgotten that one of the easiest and cheapest ways of entertaining ourselves is to tell a story.

“Story telling is also such an important way of getting kids into books and reading.

“I read a really ghastly tale of a boy who, to cut a long story short, watched so much television and ate so many crisps he ended up a crisp. And there was no happy ending!

“Thank you very much to the school and I hope the pupils at St. Mary’s enjoyed it as much as I did!”
