Ten years ago (in May – I thought it was June!) I started The Story Room. Never in my wildest dreams did I think that it would grow into what it is today! I am super proud of what we have all achieved – and by ‘all’ I mean our workshop leaders, everyone who has ever sent their children to our club, and most of all the children who come and write the stories and poetry.
I (and all our workshop leaders) have been privileged to share in not only their words (and it is a real honour!) but in their lives too. Some children have stayed with us from year 3 all the way to their GCSEs. I have loved watching our alumni children grow into the fine adults they are.
I am a much richer person for the friendships that I have made along the way and the memories I have and hope to be still here in another 10 years!
THANK YOU EVERYONE SO MUCH FOR YOUR SUPPORT!
Best wishes, Helena Steel
