Superstar kids from a Broomhill Library after school club have written their own Eurovision song lyrics to celebrate the forthcoming event.
Rachel Cawthorne, who runs the Chatterbooks club and is a huge Eurovision fan, invited the eight-to ten-year-old children to come up with their own lyrics with a love, friendship or world peace theme.
Rachel, who has been a member of a Eurovision fan club for nearly ten years, said: “I’ve always been passionate about it - in fact my first memory of watching it was when I was six. I’ve picked the winner eight out of nine years. People think I’m totally bonkers but I love it.
“Because I’m so passionate about it and because it was Europe day on May 9 I got the children to write Eurovision lyrics. I approached Waterstone’s and they kindly donated the prizes for the winners.”
The winners, who all won an encyclopaedia and dictionary/thesaurus from Waterstone’s, were Zoe Kateregga, Megan McPherson and Erin Styles.
Rachel said: “Megan and Erin wrote a song together which was a very typical Eurovision-style song, and Zoe wrote one which was very evocative and beautiful. It’s got me all excited for the competition now.”
Rachel, who has been a member of a Eurovision fan club for nearly ten years, said: “I’m incredibly proud of all of them. There were lots of different lyrics based on the Eurovision themes and they came up with some amazing ideas.”
Broomhill Library on Taptonville Road runs a number of clubs for children from birth up to about 13. The staff also run special activities during the summer holidays. For more information call in or phone 0114 273 4276.
