Yatton kids get free books

YEAR six pupils were presented with their very own illustrated dictionaries as a leaving gift.

Before heading off to secondary school, Yatton and District Rotary Club managed to raise enough money to pay for each school leaver to receive their own name inscribed copy.

The cash was raised by the club after performing crowd control duties at Weston’s annual carnival.

A leaving celebration took place at St Mary’s Church and the club’s president, David Edwards, handed over the gifts.

The books also had a dedicated page where class friends and teachers could write their good luck messages.

A total of 88 books were given to leaving students from Yatton, 35 to Congresbury and 17 from Claverham.
