A primary school in Pirton received £100 in book vouchers to help them celebrate World Book Day last week.

Pirton School will be adding the new books to their current library collection, enabling children to read a variety of new stories and continue to learn independently.

The vouchers were donated by CALA Homes - whose Comice Meadows development site is less than a mile from the school.
