Speaking at the event at Staple Hill Library, Cllr Howard Gawler said: “It’s wonderful to see so many children in South Gloucestershire this enthusiastic about reading. Children’s reading ability can often dip during the long summer holidays, but the Summer Reading Challenge helps ensure that they return to school confident and motivated readers. All of the children who have completed the challenge should be congratulated for their fantastic efforts.”

The Reading Agency’s annual Summer Reading Challenge encouraged young people to read six books or more during the holidays.
