Parents at Thomas Eaton school in Wimblington are calling for people to vote for them to receive community funding to give the school’s library a make over.

The parent teacher association is hoping to be short listed to receive money from the Aviva community fund.

Anne Appleby from the school PTA, says “In 2018 Thomas Eaton will be 200 years old. Our children deserve to be able to experience a wide range of authors and writing styles.

“They should be able to get lost in a book and let their imagination run wild.

“I think being able to give the children this much needed refreshed and revitalised library would be a fantastic way of celebrating this landmark in the school’s history.
