Youngsters in Whittlesey are celebrating after successfully exploring the literary world and completing this year’s Summer Reading Challenge.
The national challenge invited four to 11-year-olds to borrow and read any six library books over the summer.
This year’s instalment was supported by Whittlesey Town Council and district library assistant, Hayley Wynn.
She said: “We have had another successful year and we saw an increase in the number of children completing the challenge of 30 per cent.
“I’d like to give special thanks to all the volunteer helpers who also supported us this year.”
