Children from around Havering are getting creative for a new calendar including all their stories.

The calendar is being put together by the Liberty Shopping Centre, in Romford, and will include stories and pictures from 12 schools – one for each month.

Each school will write a chapter and pass the story on to the next school for them to make a contribution. It is also being published on Liberty’s website, and being recorded each week by Time FM.

The stories will be compiled in to a calendar book, with each page including a chapter, illustration and a calendar.

It will be sold at the shopping centre and proceeds will go to the Rainbow Trust charity and the Essex branch of the Marie Curie Cancer Trust.

Sara Morton, a teacher at Towers Infants School, said: “The children were very excited to be part of The Liberty: The Story of Havering and came up with lots of different ideas before producing their chapter.

“The visit to Time FM studios was a valuable experience and the children are now looking forward to hearing themselves on the radio.”
