Toddlers perform traditional festive play at packed Alverdiscot Village Hall

TODDLERS turned stars of the stage on Saturday for a performance of a traditional nativity play at a packed Alverdiscott Village Hall.

Children from Claire’s Children’s Nurseries in Barnstaple and Northam put in three performances of ‘Away in a Manger’ to different audiences throughout the day.

Youngsters from each nursery took it in turns to tell the story of Maurice the Mule, who had a disturbed night with animals playing in his manger – as well as shepherds, kings and a baby.

The children acted out the parts of the stable animals and special visitors – all of whom stopped poor Maurice from munching his hay!

Special praise should go to Jayden Sadd, Finn Keeble and Jack Dearnley-Pearson, who were all brilliant as Maurice.
