Gill Jepson is a well known and talented author from South Cumbria and is now a 'Patron of Reading'.
What is a Patron of Reading?
A Patron of Reading (PoR) is a school's special, designated children's author with whom the school forms a personal attachment. I am delighted and proud to be Patron of Reading for Broughton-in-Furness CE Primary School, Lindal and Marton Primary School and Dalton St Mary's CofE Primary School.
The idea is to develop and nurture a love for reading by working with the pupils and staff to introduce activities, competitions and events and generally raise the profile of reading and books. I am excited to be working with these schools and hope this is the start of a positive and enduring relationship with each school.
