Children rise to their summer reading challenge
DESPITE fantastic summer weather, reading proved a popular activity for children in the Frome area over the holidays.
Nearly 100 more completed this year's summer reading challenge in the Frome College Learning Partnership area. Last year 363 children completed the scheme, while this year the figure rose to 461.
Hayesdown First School broke its own record with 58 children reading all six books to receive their medal and certificate.
The library ran several successful related events, including a wildlife workshop about bats, creative writing with author Dave Gatward, and Hootycat, a workshop run by Artsplash.
