From the Dragons’ Den
Great excitement as Little Billy Goat Gruff walked over the rickety- rackety bridge, tempting the troll-who-lived-under-the-bridge to catch him and eat him for his supper. Again, excitement, as Middle Billy Goat Gruff repeated the daring feat. Huge smiles of approval as Great Big Billy Goat, with great daring, stepped forward to tempt the troll to put up a fight; and sighs of relief when the naughty troll was hurled through the air, never to be seen again. (The troll has now been rescued from behind the chancel screen where he landed after losing his battle and is now back in the box with the three goats, the rickety, rackety bridge and the green, green grass, for a few months until the next time.) Such a favourite story with Little Dragons!
Storytime is a very special time. On hearing the call, “Story Time!” our little people come happily to sit on cushions on the chancel step, ready to hear their name as they are welcomed; ready to listen and to join in as appropriate with the story of the day; then to sing along enjoying nursery rhymes and action songs. The Wheels on the Bus (with actions) is a much-enjoyed song. We really must do something about the wheels on the Dragon Bus as they are looking rather flat. A bumpy ride would be the order of the day if it was in public use.
We are so lucky in that, in our 16th year, Little Dragons still feels very special.
