Students from St Joseph’s RC Primary School, on Cherry Orchard, were presented with a trophy from Lichfield Library’s Liz Leyshon – before celebrating their success with ice cream.

The summer reading challenge took place at local libraries across the area as part of a link-up between Staffordshire County Council and The Reading Agency charity.

St Joseph’s headteacher Dee McLeary said:

“We are so proud of all the children that completed the summer reading challenge, especially during this challenging year.”
