A toy library for pre-school children opened at Gedney Church End Primary School in 2000.

It was open every Thursday for parents to take their children to borrow books and play with the toys on offer.

The scheme was funded by a charitable trust in Lincoln.

Headteacher Tricia Crouch organised the toy library to help get under-fives familiar with going to school.

Children could borrow a book, a puzzle and a toy at the end of each session.
