STORYTELLING AT THE ALAMEDA GARDENS
October 15, 2020
The Gibraltar Cultural Services (GCS) held their first story telling session since mid-March, in the Bandstand at the Alameda Gardens. Both the story telling and the beautiful outdoor setting were positively and enthusiastically received by children and parents alike.
These sessions are aimed at children aged between 3 and 5 years and the relaunch attracted ‘faithful supporters’ and some new faces. Those present were delighted with the passionate and engaging readings by Davina Barbara, Head of Cultural Development, and Shawna Jones, Education Officer at the Botanical Gardens, who is collaborating with the venture.
Hand sanitising and social distancing were, naturally, adhered to but the focus of the day was most definitely on the books.
Commenting on the event, Minister for Education and Culture John Cortes said, “Once again Gibraltar Cultural Services has provided an important and enjoyable activity, this time for our youngest, in a beautiful natural setting. The Ministry for Culture, through GCS, will continue to see us through these COVID times, with innovation and determination.”
It is necessary to book places in advance to ensure there is space as there is a strict limit on numbers attending.
