Yogaworthit Meets the Mayor of Croydon 23/06/2019
A Hybrid between Yoga and Books with Children Books Author Lucy Rowland
Children and their adult met children’s book author Lucy Rowland on the 6th of July 2019 in Croydon.
In an effort to celebrate diversity, challenge prejudice and bullying while promoting difference, appreciation and empathy Lucy read the story of Pirate Pete and His Smelly Feet. Fully focused and attentive, all partakers were following the story on their own copy of the book while being actively engaged.
Children said: “We felt excited to meet Lucy Rowland in person and we are proud we were able to turn her written story into movement and perform it to her.”
They especially enjoyed being invited aboard her pirate ship where they were trained by the Captain to become a pirate.
Part of the training was to be able to analyse and decrypt clues to find what every pirate thrives for: FINDING TREASURE!
The story behind meeting Pirate Pete
It all started when Captain Dodie and her fearsome cat, Black Pearl discovered a message in a bottle floating against the hull of their ship.
Curious and excited they opened it live in front of many local Croydonites pirates using modern technology. This is when they found out the cry out for help from poor Pirate Pete asking whoever received his message to rally on the 6th of July at the VHPirate Centre in Thornton Heath to help him solve his smelly feet problem.
“Help me find my smile again!” he pleaded.
