Haworth storytellers will be spinning even longer yarns after starting a new group.

Members of the existing Haworth Open Storytelling Circle, which meets monthly at the Old Hall pub, have established the Worth Valley Storytelling Guild.

The guild was launched last week during the 13th annual National Storytelling Week.

Adam Sargant, pictured, one of the founding members, said: “Storytelling is often assumed to be something we do with children but it is much more than that.”

The circle will continue its meetings on the third Monday evening of each month at Haworth Old Hall, Sun Street.
