We need More Reading Partners.


The Club is now on the hunt for more volunteer readers to go into local schools to help children with their reading skills, because we know that this can have a dramatic effect on a youngster’s progress and attitude – anyone with some free time, however small that may be, and has an affinity with children would suit us perfectly.


New readers will be joining over 40 readers in the Reading Partners Scheme which has been running successfully with numerous local schools since 1999 improving children’s reading skills.


This can be an extremely rewarding experience for volunteer readers and of course the child.  A good reading ability enables the child to study a wide variety of subjects, to use a computer and to write with imagination, and will be an invaluable help for their future wellbeing in life.


As well as giving this valuable help and support to youngsters, teachers are also very appreciative of the help they receive and a Reading Partner always receives a friendly welcome from them, as well of course as the children.

Dave Tollett who currently heads up this important initiative says, “There are 168 hours in a week and all you need is one free hour once a week, or even a fortnight, The Reading Partner has complete choice as to how often they attend school.”  Dave added, “Do please make contact, I promise you will love the experience and you will be giving much needed help to local children.”


If you would like to take part or need more information, then please contact Rotarian Dave Tollet using the link below.
