There is a secret garden round the back of a falling-down old mansion in Tooting. I was happy to be invited by the lovely Emily from Story Island to take part in an afternoon of storytelling and cake eating – all in aid of cancer research. t was brilliant.
Among the twisting beanstalks, shady umbrellas, rambling old trees and hidden corners, we listened to tales from lost worlds, we forgot our phones and iPads… a glimpse into the long, golden, enchanted afternoons of my dreams.
Thanks to Emily Duizend and Transition Town Tooting.
