PRIMARY school pupils from Wokingham have been celebrating the 30th anniversary of the children's book 'We're Going on a Bear Hunt'.

The bear themed event was organised by Wokingham Borough Council's Community Engagement Team and was also supported by David Wilson Homes Southern, who have recently donated £200 to the schools library facilities.

Elizabeth McDonald from Wokingham Borough Libraries took the children from Floreat Montague Park Primary School on a bear hunt and the children also created their own bear masks.

The book, which was written by Michael Rosen and illustrated by Helen Oxenbury, was first released in 1989 and follows a families adventures as they search for a bear.

Rob Allen, sales director at David Wilson Homes Southern, said: “We were delighted to be able to support such a fantastic event hosted by the school and Wokingham Borough Council.

“With Floreat Montague Park Primary School being located on our Montague Park development we have formed a very strong relationship with them and will continue to support their ongoing projects.

“As encouraging children into reading is a top priority for many schools, we were pleased to be able to give them a donation to their school library as part of the event.”

The children were also joined by Oliver Parmenter the marketing manager at David Wilson Homes, who assisted them in their arts and crafts task and presented the school with the funds.
