Colburn youngsters became pirates for the day as their new school library was officially opened.
Author Saviour Pirotta and Chairman of Richmondshire District Council, Coun Jill McMullon, joined them for a swashbuckling adventure into storyland.
The new pirate themed library at Colburn Primary School has been created thanks to a grant from the Foyles Foundation, donations from the Friends of Colburn School and the support of local community groups including the Tesco Community Champion scheme.
“We are committed to reading and ensuring that children meet their full potential,” said headmaster, Mike Watt.
“We feel it is important to give them a special place to access and enjoy books.”
