Pupils at Elmlea Junior School have a new library – with exciting design and state-of-the-art equipment, thanks to the generosity of parent Richard Blunden.

As MD of Bristol business Moduflex, which specialises in the design and manufacture of space-saving storage systems, library shelving and office furniture, Richard put his company’s resources at the school’s disposal.

“Our design team thought very carefully about how to make the library attractive and engaging for children,” he said.

“The library has its own learning tree and woodland furniture, and a glass wall opening on to a reading deck. Whenever the weather is right, children can now read in the fresh air.”
