Members of Lockwood Parish Council visited both Lockwood Primary School and Lingdale Primary School in the two weeks before Christmas to hand out Christmas presents to all the children.
The Parish Council funded the purchase of over 300 books so that a reading book could be given to each child in every school.
With ages ranging from 2 years up to 11 years, all books were specially chosen to be age appropriate for each year group. Both schools also received a small selection of books to add to their school libraries.
The children were all excited to received their wrapped presents and we hope they enjoyed reading their books over the Christmas holidays.
