Young bookworms at Boughton Leigh Infant and Boughton Leigh Junior schools in Brownsover took part in a readathon this week.

Ready Steady Read is being held by Usborne and ends today (Friday).

Children are encouraged to read as much as possible and record the time spent reading on their reading log.

Paula Dew, Usborne independent organiser, said sponsorship is used for brand new Usborne Books for the school.
