A Sidcup school has completed an innovative and imaginative learning resource for the children.

Holy Trinity Lamorbey Primary School has painstakingly renovated a double decker bus into a library and, upon completion of the project, a huge party was held to celebrate its opening.

The Mayor of Bexley, Cllr Eileen Pallen, attended the party to officially open the library.

Sir Quentin Blake, who is famously known for his iconic children’s illustrations in the Roald Dahl books and - more recently - in David Walliams’ stories, provided some original artwork to adjourn both sides of the book bus.

Laura Blanchard, Project Manager and Vice Chair of the school, described the project as being ‘truly inspirational’ for the children.

She added: “Students at the school now have the chance to read at their leisure throughout lunchtimes and during reading sessions with their classes.”
