Twice a week I go to the local primary school and listen to the children reading. It must be about the easiest voluntary work you could wish for and so rewarding.
It’s a small village school , the church of St.Lawrence is opposite, I hear the church bells chime the hour as I arrive. The playing fields look out onto the Quantock Hills, where, in the spring and summer I sit on a bench listening to the children reading and wonder if they have any idea how lucky they are growing up in such a lovely place official site....
