The Lord Mayor of Canterbury provided a storytime surprise to one lucky school after they won a Buster’s Book Club challenge day.
Reading at a special assembly, pupils were delighted to have the Mayor in attendance.
Cllr George Metcalfe read Trixie the Witch’s Cat by Nick Butterworth, before then presenting a signed copy of the book donated by the celebrated children’s author.
Canterbury Primary School claimed the reward for biggest improvement with their reading, after competing against schools in the county.
More than 60,000 children at 250 primary schools were involved in the challenge.
Mr Metcalfe said: “Many congratulations to Banson class of Canterbury Primary school. You are the top school for reading in the whole of Kent”
Simon Dolby, chief executive at the KM Charity Team which organises Buster’s Book Club, said: “Well done to Canterbury Primary on their challenge win. The children have worked really hard with their reading, and we think the Lord Mayor’s visit and a signed copy of one of their favourite books is a great way to say thank you.”
