Tell us all about your nativity tales

IT’S that time of year when schools are putting the last minute touches to a very important day in the calendar.

The Nativity is on the way and it’s a time for many children across Hartlepool and east Durham to step on to the stage, often for the first time.

Mums, dads and grandparents will proudly watch as their young ones deliver their lines.

It’s a very special moment - and we would like to share some of the inspirational stories behind the school production.

It could be your child who has overcome adversity to become a Nativity star.

Perhaps your son, daughter or grandchild has stepped in at the last minute to take on their first ever stage role.

Or is it your loved one who has had to miss out at the very last moment through illness or injury.

Are you a teacher who has put it all together and would love to share the story of how your Nativity has come together.

There will be lots more examples of inspirational stories behind the Nativity and we want to hear them all.

Get in touch and let’s give those rising stars the spotlight they truly deserve.
