  1. I’ve only just see this about the Book Nook – what a great idea! I will certainly have a look, and I’ve got some children’s books that I’ll leave there.

  2. The Book Nook is inspired! I love it. I dropped off some books yesterday and took one away with me. It will shortly wing it’s way to Australia with me, and I will return to the Book Nook with more books and I know I will find others there to read! Brilliant!

  3. Here we are two years on and the Book Nook is still well-used. Last summer holidays some of the village children were able to find some reading material there, but more children’s books would be great. especially when school is closed.

  4. Just judged the gingerbread house competition at the Christmas fair. It was so difficult to decide on winners for each category when all of them showed imagination, enthusiasm and precision in different ways when putting these gorgeous festive items together! Some were family projects, others were done by individual children. Well done everyone, and that’s not just an empty bit of praise…you all produced gingerbread creations which looked tasty, festive and inventive. Also, you get to eat them afterwards, so you are all winners, really!
