The 1st Easington Brownies have created special story sacks for families at Rachel House supported living scheme in Banbury.

With support from Sanctuary Housing, four groups of Brownies each made a story sack for young parents at Rachel House.

Each sack focuses on one storybook chosen by the Brownies, who sewed felt shapes on to them reflecting the story titles, and contains the book for the young parents and children to read together, along with toys and objects to help in telling the story.

The Brownies visited Rachel House to explain what is in the story sacks and how the objects can be used to tell the story.
