In November 2015 Cockenzie P4 children recorded ‘The Three Craws An The Bairn In A Manger’ in the school to be broadcast on local radio East Coast FM http://eastcoastfm.co.uk . Station Manager Ian Robertson came down to the school and recorded the show for transmission over the airwaves in the run up to Christmas. I was really thrilled to watch the children record for the show and to later hear it over the radio. My little troupe of The Three Craws with me as Narrator, have been a regular feature on East Coast FM during 2012/13 with several of my scripts. It’s been my dream to have children perform the scripts. The temporary Three Craws looked brilliant in their ‘The Three Craws’ skip caps which I gifted them for taking part.
I was later commissioned by the school to write a script for P4 children based on the demolition on 26 September 2015 of Cockenzie Power Station chimneys. They have been a massive landmark for people on land, at sea, and in the air for several decades. They are sure to be missed. http://www.eastlothiancourier.com/news/14249371.Authors_and_storytellers_to_be_welcomed_to_school’s_first_literary_festival/
