Students and parents were "queuing out of the door" to look at the new facility at Mora Primary and Nursery School at the launch on January 22.

Activities were laid on for pupils who made their own bookmarks, got their faces painted, listened to a performance by the school choir and enjoyed snacks.

Elise Fritt, friend of the school in Mora Road, said: "Thanks to donations from The London Book Project, each student in attendance was able to 'buy' a book using 'forest currency' like leaves and twigs."

She said "generous donations" from the nearby Wickes' store helped complete and decorate the space.
