A SCHOOL'S library in Stansted Mountfitchet is building its book collection with a little help from a construction company.
St Mary's Primary School received a gift of �200 from housebuilder Taylor Wimpey North Thames which has been spent on books to help develop the literacy skills of Key Stage 1 pupils.
Headteacher Christine Tonkins said: "Everyone at the school is very grateful indeed for this kind gesture from Taylor Wimpey.
"These books would normally have to be paid for out of our school budget, but the fact that we have received this donation means we have been able to buy them sooner, rather than later - and can now use our resources to enhance other areas of our library for the benefit of the children.

Taylor Wimpey made the donation after being approached for assistance by Liz Ring from the school's parents, teachers and friends association.
