Rugby Editorial 1st Oct, 2023   0

OVER 700 young bookworms in Warwickshire took part in this year’s Summer Reading Challenge.

Rugby’s young readers who completed the challenge were presented with certificates and medals by the town’s MP Mark Pawsey and Mayor Maggie O’Rourke at Rugby Library.

This years challenge, organised by the Reading Agency in conjunction with libraries across the UK, took inspiration from the Women’s World Cup, tying into the ‘Ready, Set Read’ theme of the challenge.

Children were able to set their own challenges and targets, supported by craft activities and technology events at Rugby Library.




Mr Pawsey said: “Having 700 children taking part is a real achievement.

“The Summer Reading Challenge is a great programme that helps children, particularly of primary school age, continue to read and learn over the summer – and most importantly, it makes it fun.


“It’s always good to see the enthusiasm for the event over the summer and I hope that children in Rugby will continue to embrace the joys of reading.”
