What’s the book bench trail?
Following the successful introduction of the book bench trail to last year’s event, 10 primary schools will be designing and decorating a themed bench that looks like a book. These will be scattered around the town centre for people to find. On Saturday 30 March, there will also be the opportunity to help decorate a book bench in Chorley town centre to enable as many people as possible to be part of this fantastic initiative. The book benches will be designed by local school children working in partnership with Edge Hill University Primary English team.
The benches will also have a trail quiz which will again be designed by the children with help from students at Edge Hill.
The primary schools taking part include:
Christ Church Charnock Richard Primary
Coppull St Johns Primary
Heskin Pembertons Primary
St George’s Primary
St Gregory’s Primary
St James’ Primary
St Mary’s Primary
St Peter’s Primary
