Children loved a sensory story time at Witham Library.

More than 20 youngsters attended the special session led by Judith Lievesly, 18, and Mollie Jacobs, 19, who volunteered to take run the story time as part of their own career development at the event last Thursday.

They shared two interactive stories The Squid and The Whale and We Are Going on a Bear Hunt.

During the stories it snowed, rained and they all had to squelch through thick mud.
