You may remember that we were winners at the Fenland Business Awards 2013 for our dual language Lithuanian children’s books.

Our books are now available in Russian and Polish and our business is growing. I just wanted to say that Carrie and I also read the article in the Sun.

We’ve found the Lithuanian community very welcoming, both whilst writing and producing our books sets and also the parents have been complimentary at school. It is there our books are really helping to develop the next generations reading and writing skills. The aim of our books is to welcome and support Lithuanian families into integrating fully into the community.

We recognise the vibrancy, the new skill and opportunities that migration has brought to Wisbech.
