Di Botcher icWales:

A Port Talbot television star turned storyteller to entertain Neath schoolchildren at the town’s library.

Di Botcher – who has appeared in Belonging, Little Britain and the current run of Post Office adverts – sat and read to children from Ysgol Gynradd Gymraeg Castell Nedd.

The actress started learning Welsh earlier this year for BBC Wales’ Big Welsh Challenge multimedia project, and treated her audience to Helfa Drysor (Treasure Hunt) by Nick Butterworth.

She said: “Since I’m from Port Talbot, it’s been lovely to be able to read to children from the area.

“I try to make sure I practise my Welsh every day and it’s been a struggle because I spend a lot of time in London.”
