Reading and eating
Faversham’s Macknade Fine Foods has joined forces with early reading experts Reading Fairy for a programme of half-term events to launch its new in-store activity sheets. Combining a love of good food and a passion for storytelling, the four free sessions featuring The Runaway Pancake & The Little Red Hen are aimed at children between one and six. Sessions take place on Tuesday and Wednesday, February 13 and 14 at 10am and 11.15am. The sheets aim to get children to explore new produce and think about where their food comes from.
Reading Fairy founder Emily Guille-marrett said: “Healthy eating and learning to read are critical to a child’s future life chances and well-being. We have been running Reading Fairy classes for pre-school children at Macknade since day one and hope our free events this half term will inspire children to love both good food and stories.” Macknade’s Rosie Collins added: “We have been working with Emily since she founded Reading Fairy and it’s been wonderful to see it grow. We are thrilled to be teaming up this half term in the hope of sparking plenty of enthusiasm.”
The sessions take place in the events space above the café. No need to book.
