Children celebrate Roald Dahl's stories at Burnham Library

James Hockaday

About 100 children came to Burnham Library, in Windsor Lane, on Wednesday to celebrate the work of children's author Roald Dahl.

Children listened to stories by Roald Dahl, had their faces painted, played games, enjoyed a picnic and went on a treasure hunt.

Youngsters, many of whom were in fancy dress, also made model heads with growing grass hair.

Burnham Library manager Sue Lemon said: They seemed really excited, you don't know these days with so many children plugged into their screens but they seemed to enjoy it."

The day was in aid of the children's reading initiative the Summer Reading Challenge, which encourages children to read six library books over the holidays.
