On Thursday 7th March 2019, Leigh Road Baptist Church Pre-school, Marguerite Drive, Leigh-on-Sea celebrated World Book Day with millions of other children around the world. The children and staff were encouraged to come to pre-school as their favourite character from a book.
Lisa Sutton, LRBC Pre-school Manager said, “World Book Day is a highlight of our calendar at Leigh Road Baptist Church Pre-school. It was a delight to see all the children and staff dressed up as their favourite characters; from Peter Pan and Captain Hook from JM Barrie’s classic to Little Red Riding Hood from the much loved fairy tale by Charles Perrault . This fun day also raised £35 for LRBC Pre-school which will go towards activities such as visits from Southend United FC.”
