It was destination Neverland for schoolchildren at Downham’s Nelson Academy today (Thursday, March 2), as World Book Day celebrations got underway.

Pupils at the Nursery Road school followed a Peter Pan-theme during the day, which links in with their theatre club production which is due to take place later in the year.
