Hi Charlie, Just wanted to say a big thank you for the wonderful storytelling session on Monday. It was thoroughly enjoyed by all staff and children and indeed there has been nothing but positive comments by all those who watched it. You certainly managed to cover so many aspects of Literacy in each of your sessions and we were delighted by how you managed to vary your content so suitably to meet the needs of each age range. We would certainly like to use you again in the future. It would be great if you could come back next year and entertain us with different stories. Once again, a big thanks from all of us here at Whitchurch.

The staff were raving about your storytelling ... and we'll book you for the same time next year. The children were so keen on your performances - a couple of quotes: 'I've never laughed so much in my whole life.' from a seven year old whose mum is away in Iran at the moment and he is missing her. 'That was brilliant!' and 'I wish I could tell stories like that.' Long may you continue to convert people to the power of storytelling!"

I just wanted to say a BIG THANK YOU for speaking at our event on Friday. I haven't reviewed the evaluations yet, but verbal feedback was of course excellent, so well done you. I wanted you to be some light relief after the heaviness of the earlier speaker, but I think that you somewhat overshadowed him altogether!!! Best wishes and thank you once again."
