Bookworms at a Chesterfield primary school have had their newly refurbished library opened by local MP Toby Perkins.

Whitecotes Primary’s Friends, Parents and Teachers Association funded the £3,000 refurbishment of the library and the school was also awarded £5,000 by publishers Foyles to invest in books.

Mr Perkins said: “It was a real privilege to be invited to Whitecotes to cut the ribbon on this fantastic new library.

“I congratulate the FPTA for their fundraising.”

Whitecotes School Acting Head Linda Dawson said she was grateful to Toby for opening the library and looks forward to seeing the resource being used by the school community.
