A temporarily empty shop unit in Peterborough city centre will be transformed into an hub of literacy activity during the summer holidays.
From Tuesday, July 26 to Wednesday, August 31 the Peterborough Literacy Hub will be located on 33-35 Bridge Street and open from 10am to 3pm, Tuesday to Saturday.
It will feature fun new themes for each week’s activities including ‘Jungle Safari’ and ‘Under the Sea’.
Families will be able to pick up a free book, take part in fun literacy activities and get stuck into sharing stories in the themed book corner.
They will also be able to find out where to get literacy support in the city and enter competitions to win prizes.
The importance of healthy eating will also be promoted with two weeks dedicated to activities that will promote nutritious food and recipes.
The hub will be supported by a team of volunteers from City College Peterborough and the National Literacy Trust to inspire a love of reading.
