Children in Thetford have been enjoying a good read as part of this year’s summer reading scheme at Thetford Library.

Some 330 children signed up to the challenge to read six books over the summer with 180 completing the scheme. One youngster read 22 books during the holidays.

David Nichols, library manager, said: “We certainly had more children taking part this year.”
