CHILDREN aged 4-11 are invited to sign up for this year’s Hillingdon Summer Reading Challenge. 

The theme, Marvellous Makers, is about celebrating creativity. Children will be invited to fire up their imaginations and unleash story-telling through the power of reading.  

Summer Reading Challenge is a national initiative encouraging children to keep reading during the school holidays. 

Children need to visit their local library to sign up. Once registered, they will be given a folder to record their reading journey.

To complete the challenge, they will need to borrow books at least four times during the holiday period. Youngsters can claim stickers as they progress and will receive a certificate and a medal when they finish.  

Youngsters can join any time between Saturday, July 6 and Saturday, September 14. Visit 

A highlight this year is The Imagination Station, a free drop-in day of craft activities, story time sessions, plus fitness and art activities at Manor Farm, Ruislip on Thursday, August 15, 10am-4pm.  

Hillingdon Council is looking for young people aged 14 and above to volunteer and help with this year’s events.
