The project was part-funded by the Friends of Preston Hedge’s and will provide a new environment for pupils to access the school’s extensive range of fiction and non-fiction texts.

Headteacher, Paul Watson said: “We hope this project will create a lifelong love of reading for all members of our school community.

“We believe that every child should leave primary school being an avid and enthusiastic reader. The whole school community is really excited about the arrival of our bus and are looking forward to shared reading experiences aboard.”

The Red Bus was officially opened by children’s author Graham Jones during a ceremony yesterday (Wednesday).
