Dandara brings the magic of storytelling to local students

To celebrate this year’s World Storytelling Day (20th March 2022), local housebuilder Dandara teamed up with Hannah Brailsford of Tiny Tales Storytelling to bring the world of stories to life for pupils at Bocking Primary School, which is just down the road from its Towerlands Park development in Essex.

Hannah’s visit brought the world of words and reading to life. Pupils were engaged in the tales, offering their own thoughts and participating in the stories through music and movement.

Rachel Lindop, Head of Sales at Dandara Eastern added: “With so many people recognising the power of storytelling this past week, it was great to be able to provide pupils at Bocking Primary with their own taste of storytelling magic.

“It was fantastic getting the opportunity to engage with Braintree’s younger generation, and we are so proud to have such a fantastic school close to our Towerlands Park development. We hope that the children enjoyed the storytelling session!”

Mrs Cagney, Headteacher at Bocking Primary School, said: “We’re so glad our pupils had the chance to celebrate the joy of storytelling following World Storytelling Day earlier in the week. It was wonderful to see the children so engaged in the stories. You could really see their imaginations at work.

“The children were so excited and mesmerized by Hannah’s storytelling – they couldn’t stop talking about it after! We’d like to say a big thank you to Dandara for organising this activity.”

Dandara’s Towerlands Park development is situated in a prime Braintree location, with a range of amenities within convenient reach. While there are many town centre shops and restaurants close by, Towerlands Park also offers buyers the chance to enjoy open green spaces, at the likes of the nearby Braintree Nature Reserve, and Marshall’s Park.

Dandara is currently selling its new homes at Towerlands Park in Braintree, just 1 mile away from Bocking Primary School, where a range of three, four and five bedroom homes are available, with prices starting at £395,000 for a three bedroom semi-detached home with two tandem driveway parking spaces.
