Raising the level of aspiration in our Norfolk schools is vital for our future - and at the heart of my Norfolk Way project. What better way than to give youngsters a love of reading: a love that opens doors in our minds and stays with us for the rest of our lives?
That’s why I was delighted to recently launch the “Get Norfolk Reading” campaign in conjunction with Beanstalk – details here. The reading campaign is also supported by Stephen Fry, Louis de Bernieres and many other authors from our area.
If you know of anyone who has a few hours to spare each week to read to children of primary age, please do encourage them to get involved and together we can make a difference.
