St Andrew's Primary School, in Congresbury, transformed an empty classroom into a library.

English teacher at the school, Katie Foreman, said: "It was a lovely seeing the children's reaction during the opening.

"While the work was taking place, the room was kept under wrap so no one could see inside and the room has been completely transformed.
