Drop Everything and Read Gloucestershire!

Drop Everything and Read is a great way to create fun and excitement around reading for pleasure. It sends a message that reading for pleasure is important, and something everyone should make time for.

We want as many schools in Gloucestershire to take part in our DEAR. Scheduled for 2pm on the last Friday of each month (or any day or time that suits you), we are hoping a Drop Everything and Read will become a regular fixture in schools timetables.

To take part, just choose a regular time that suits you, let everyone know, and at the appropriate time, just Drop Everything and Read!

Tweedy’s dropping everything to read – are you??

And for any child in Gloucestershire who clocks up more than 1,000 minutes before the end of July 2021, we will donate a Phoenix comic to a child in hospital!

Move aside Strava, there’s a new kid in town!!

Use our brilliant new tool Track My Read. Although originally designed for schools, any team, group, family or individual can use it to track your reading. Set yourselves a target number of minutes to read, curl up with a good book and relax as you smash your target!
