Get Suffolk Reading


Get Suffolk Reading inspires families across the county to read together, and helps parents to support their children’s literacy skills.

We also work with schools to aid the teaching of literacy and partner with local organisations who support our mission to raise literacy levels across the county. If you would like to get involved please email and sign up to our newsletter for regular updates.

Summer activities in Suffolk

Get Suffolk Reading is running activities in Haverhill, Lowestoft and Stowmarket - we've got bee trails, nature walks and storytelling chairs! Attendance at any of these counts for the reward card scheme.

Banana Bingo cards

Banana Bingo has launched at Haverhill Market every Saturday - pick your cards up from the market itself or print one off before you go!

This family-friendly scavenger hunt encourages children to be more aware of their surrounding and helps improve vocabulary and confident communication.
