There’ll also be a short act of worship, crafts, quizzes, storytelling, giant board games, an arts corner, cake decorating, dream jar designing, a chocolate fountain, a book swap and refreshments will be served.

A church spokesperson said: “Come along to our next Saturday activities morning at St Mary’s Church and help us celebrate 100 years since the birth of one of world’s best storytellers, Roald Dahl.

“Everyone is welcome and all the entertainment will be free.”
