Tall Story Chair Pembroke Dock Community School.
Robert was asked to run a training course run by ‘Springboard’, a Welsh Assembly funded project that offers free training courses for adults

Working with a group of five mums and dads from the Pembroke Dock area we designed and created a carved Oak Story Chair for the new storytelling area at the Pembroke Dock Community School.

It was installed on a sunny day in March and will soon be joined by a circular seating area.

This part of the school is being developed with a range of outdoor learning features including raised beds for allotments and a musical play area.
