#040 Storyteller in the Dales - Rhoda Fraser

#040 Storyteller in the Dales -  Rhoda Fraser

Welcome back to the next episode of Inside Yorkshire. Susan talks to professional storyteller Rhoda Fraser about her life in the dales. Rhoda shares her poetry and storytelling giving details of how she got started with her unusual career choice.

About the Guest:

Rhoda began her life on her family farm in Arkengarthdale, rural North Yorkshire. As an only child, with a vivid imagination, she won a Brook Bond creative writing competition at the age of 10 and so began her interest in storytelling.

Rhoda writes poetry and has published several books. She enjoys entertaining young and old alike with her tales and leads Ghost walks around Richmond market town. She tells us about her Dales Tea and Tales events and her interest in charity fundraising. The day we spoke to her she was hosting the first of two fundraising pie and pea suppers that weekend in her own home, raising funds for the local Methodist Chapel and an Alzheimer support group in Richmond. This is one very busy lady with interesting tales to tell.
