Update time

Hello lovely readers. I have various pieces of news that I want to share with you. The first is that we now have a loyalty card at Chicken and Frog. For every £10 you spend, you receive a stamp. 5 stamps equals a 20% discount on books.

loyalty cardThere’s a bit of healthy competition going on between myself and Mr Frog, as we have a chicken stamp and a frog stamp…team Chicken will prevail!

In the New Year, on Monday 20th January in fact, we will be visited by author, John Dougherty. John will be spending the day with pre-booked schools, but has kindly agreed to hang out on the sofa for a while after school too. I’ll remind you closer to the time…

We have been very busy over the past few weeks, securing a whole host of exciting author events for 2014. Expect to meet Mo O’Hara, Laura Dockrill, Sara Grant…we also have an event booked for the Spring, mixing science, gardening and books! Not to mention our huge plans for Fairtrade Fortnight, an expansion of our tuition centre (in terms of classes, not actual space).

Last thing. Our website has changed slightly. Our What’s On page gives details of our regular activities, the Calendar gives you a quick overview of the week (and you can skip forward far into the future too) and the Events page is a short and sweet preview of up and coming author events. All of our events can also be found on our Facebook page.

p.s. If you are a teacher who is interested in bringing a class to meet Laura Dockrill and/or Sara Grant, please contact us. Sara will be with us on 19th March and Laura will  be with us on 26th March. Both authors’ books are suitable for ages 7+, with Sara writing for teens as well as younger readers. There will be a morning and afternoon session available. The visit is free of charge, although we do ask you to pre-order books (at a 10% school discount).
