The grant was given so that a small group of pupils could purchase books for the library and experience the joys of browsing through book shops, especially as one of the biggest and best second-hand book shops in the country, at Barter Books in Alnwick, is so close.The pupils had a super, relaxing morning that included a guided walk around the historical shop, exploring its past and culminating in the purchase of over 90 much-needed books for the library.Generously, Glendale PTA also contributed by funding the coach costs and treating the students to a slice of cake and tea in the coffee shop; confirming to the pupils that there are very few better ways to pass the time than browsing through books! Glendale Middle School whole-heartedly thanked the Siobhan Dowd Trust and the Glendale PTA for making this possible.
