What a beautiful park Rowntree Park is!
And what a beautiful place to have a Reading Café.
Now it just so happens that Salma was 8 last week, and one of her birthday treats was a trip to the Reading Café. Which is where I met her. And introduced her to our new placemats.
I had the honour of performing my ‘Passion Fruit’ poem (which appears on the placemat) specially for her as a little extra birthday treat. And then she wrote a fabulous poem (in the space provided on the placemat) about her favourite food – which she’ll be entering into the Festival food poetry competition.
Not to be outdone, her 5-year-old brother Larbi also came along and wrote a poem for the competition about his favourite food.
Well now, if Salma and Larbi can, so can you!
