A giant book of ‘Room on the Broom’, by Julia Donaldson features in a special display at the Hildreds Shopping Centre this week, as the main focus of its National Book Week celebrations.
In the popular children’s story book, the witch and her cat fly happily over forests, rivers and mountains on their broomstick until a stormy wind blows away the witch’s hat, bow and wand.
They are retrieved by a dog, a bird and a frog, and each animal asks for a ride on the broom. They climb on, one after the next, until the broom is so heavy that it snaps in two.
The centre is also running a colouring competition giving children the chance to win a copy of ‘Room on the Broom’ and an activity book.
Deputy centre manager, Steve Andrews who created the display, said: “We would love to see children come to the Hildreds dressed as their favourite book characters.”

The display will be in the Hildreds until Monday, when the centres colouring competition winners will be judged.
