Join Us At The Book Fair Tonight!


The Spinebreakers' first night of the fair was a success, reaching sales of over £400!

Lilly and Alisha helped to give away the goodie bags to our first 15 customers.
A winner hasn't come forward yet, so please make sure you check your goodie bag for the
Golden Ticket!

The Spinebreakers helped to set up the hall by organising an area for books that were heavily reduced; a place for all the stationery and posters; and displayed signs around the building reminding parents where they were based. Freddie and Bradley welcomed customers with biscuits and helped children to find the books they were looking for.

Mulberry Spinebreakers Visit Harold Hill Library!

Our Mulberry class Spinebreakers met the Spinebreakers from Mead yesterday during their visit to Harold Hill Library. They spent their time sharing some of the wonderful stories the library has to offer. Nicole and Iyinope particularly liked the Mr Men and Little Miss series!
