Council-Backed Reading Scheme
A Council-backed popular summer reading challenge has set a new record for the number of children taking part — for the third year running.
The year's theme of 'record breakers' captured imaginations and sparked a huge range of spin-off activities for youngsters, including storytelling, parachute games and crafts.
Cheshire East libraries got more children attending events and more schools actively involved.
The total number of children who started the summer reading challenge was 5,788 — which is more than ever before. Moreover, more than 60 per cent completed the challenge and received a 'record breaker' medal and certificate.
