The i newsletter cut through the noise

Andy Bradley, centre director at the Bridges, said: "We are big supporters of World Book Day and we hope families will be encouraged to pay us a visit and drop in to hear a story or two next week.

"The best way to encourage children to pick up a book is to make reading a really fun activity for them and I believe our session ticks all the boxes, both for avid readers and those who may need a little more of a push."
