Travelling Books Book Fair

A very big, “Thank-you!” to everyone who came along to support our recent Travelling Books book fair. The children really enjoyed browsing along the shelves and choosing a favourite book.


It was excellent to see so many mums, dads, grandmas, granddads and friends enjoying the fair, along with the children. Your purchases raised a magnificent £800 which generated £420 of commission. This has enabled us to order two sets of classroom readers...The Secret Garden by Frances Hodgson Burnett and The Wind in the Willows by Kenneth Grahame. Hopefully these classic books will be read and enjoyed by many children in school.


For the younger children we have ordered a variety of titles, including: The Pirate Cruncher;

Mr Stink and Billionaire Boy to name but a few!


Many thanks also go to Mr Dunsby, Mrs Ford, Mrs Boyd and Mrs Guilfoyle for giving up their time to run the fair and to everyone who bought a book, enabling us to promote the importance of reading for enjoyment.



We hope you get great pleasure from your new books and look forward to seeing you at the next fair.
