Penny Lynch, the owner of Love2Eat Deli on Burton Road, is continually looking at ways to introduce her quirky little eaterie to a wider audience, and with amazing weekly offers, such as the Three Course Meal and “as much wine as you can drink” on a Saturday 🙂 and The Monday Night Supper Club, the boutique deli (which will be celebrating its first birthday in a couple of weeks time), is going from strength to strength. Children can now feel a part of the deli, as Weekly Story-Time has now started, running each Wednesday morning between 11.00am – 11.45am.

This morning, we went along to show some support and to get some snaps of the event. Didsbury based children’s author, Angelina Johnson, organised the very excitable children around her and the reading got underway. Being someone who thinks reading can’t start early enough, I found it really lovely to see the children really captivated by the power of words. A real change to see the audience, really focused and listening, rather than being hyper and demanding every new fangled toy or device available. It was also a real pleasure to hear them commenting on the stories and telling their own spooky Hallowe’en tales.

Angelina judged the mood of the children really well, and after three stories it was onto colouring Hallowe’en pictures and making spooky masks. There was a mix of children there from the quite grown-up (Lucy is now seven years old!) to tiny babes in arms. It was also such a lovely environment that the two men who popped in for coffee, didn’t feel they had walked into a creche and sat down quite happily – albeit outside – to enjoy their break.

So, all in all, a very lovely morning spent in the company of Love2Eat Deli…

    Lucy may act older, but she’s actually only just 7.

    This is a great post for a working Dad – it’s great to see what my kids get up to during the day!

    Cheeky request, but I’ve got my brother’s little ‘un due in a couple of months and my best friend’s daughter already being gorgeous, so what do people recommend for baby books?

    Already got a couple of copies of the Hungry Caterpillar as I loved that as a kid (can juist about remember it!), but what is the contemporary choice?

      Monkey Puzzle by Julia Donaldson was Lucy’s favourite.
