Bookstart Bear came face to face with the new St Albans Mayor at a local pre-school.

The Mayor, Cllr Geoff Harrison, was the special guest of the Alban Way Children’s Centres at the Little Stars Pre-School in St Luke’s Church, Cell Barnes Lane, as part of Bookstart Week.

And he found himself sharing the spotlight with Bookstart Bear who was also visiting the children at the pre-school.

During National Bookstart Week, staff at the centre encouraged parents and children to read together on a daily basis, held activities to help families see the benefits of reading together daily and engaged in the theme of My Hero.
