A HUDDERSFIELD reading group has received national recognition.
The group was initially set up by librarians Judith Robinson and Mazhar Iqbal at Huddersfield Library and continued to flourish under the guidance of Shaun Allinson. Shaun went on to the National Outstanding Learner of the Year Award at this year’s Adult Learners’ awards.
The group meet every Friday and is now featured on the national BBC website.
Kirklees Council Cabinet Member, Clr Shabir Pandor commented: “This is a testament to the value of these reading groups. They are also a great way to meet new people, improve skills and gain confidence.”
