    Surrey reading aloud competition 2018

    Congratulations to Wendy England, nominated by Natalie England, the winner of the 2018 Surrey Reading Aloud competition. Wendy received more than half the votes in the competition reading aloud Dave Pigeon by Swapna Haddow.

    The Reading Aloud competition has revealed a wealth of talent in Surrey, amongst children and adults, for reading stories aloud. You can still listen to Wendy and the other shortlisted readings on Brooklands Radio.

    If this inspires you to read aloud to someone you know, please pop into your local library and borrow something. Feel free to ask a member of staff for a recommendation.
