YOUNG bookworms have been set a reading challenge for the summer holidays.
Children across Stamford, Bourne and The Deepings are encouraged to read six books during their break from school with incentives and rewards up for grabs as well as a certificate for anyone who completes the challenge.
This year it has a circus theme with a dedicated website following six characters who have signed up for a circus academy. For each book a child reads, the characters they follow will learn a new skill.
Children can sign up for the scheme at libraries in Stamford, Bourne or Market Deeping and then visit www.circus-stars.org.uk to get started.
