The recent Young Readers Programme was well received by local school children from Drayton Green Primary, as well as our retailers and our in-centre management staff.
Waterstone’s, Nuffield Health, Ealing Central Library, and Tesco helped host 120 children over at the centre during the event on the 3rd July.
The children were taught how to choose books that might be of interest to them, and were invited to pick three that they could take home for free.
Organised as part of the Young Readers Programme, the National Literacy Trust has designed events to inspire children under the age of 11 to read in their spare time, and to see reading as a fun and creative activity. This program stems from a study that showed that reading outside of the classroom instigates higher reading levels within the classroom.
