Professional storyteller Richard York, a member of the Society for Storytelling, ran the session.

Caroline King, teacher at West Witney Primary School, said: “We were delighted to be invited and it was a fun day for all the pupils involved and it was great to see them so engaged in Richard’s stories.”

Philippa Stewart, senior sales manager at David Wilson Homes, said: “Events such as these give David Wilson Homes the opportunity to make a difference in the communities in which they build and encourage the awareness week that promotes skills such as reading, writing, listening and creativity.”
