A Haverhill author's pledge to give away 500 copies for her debut illustrated children's book has moved on with pupils at two of the town's schools receiving free books.

In October, Nan Eshelby said she would give away the copies of Bombus and the Beeline, a rhyming picture and colouring book that she wrote to encourage children to help bees by growing wildflowers.

Now children at both Place Farm (115 pupils) and St Felix primary schools have received copies of the book after taking part in a 'Design a Dream Bee Garden’ competition, set by Nan.

All entries received a copy of the book and winners received a signed paperback and some of the winners are in the attached photo.

Place Farm and St Felix teachers Lisa McConnell and Claire Shirm, respectively, led the way in the promoting the competition at their schools.

Nan said: "If you would like to help bees by buying a book or t-shirt, of which 20 per cent of sales will go to the Bumble Bee Conservation Trust, either email me on bombusthebee@gmail.com or visit my website www.bombusthebee.com."
