Cops & Robbers Holiday Club took place from Monday to Friday at Royston Methodist Church last week.

Children aged from four to 11 attended the free event which involved songs, games, craft activities and bible stories at the Queens Road church.

The day, which was led by children and families worker John Hardwick, saw youngsters turning up in a variety of different costumes.

During the week some tried their hand at bowling, while others got stuck in with some hat-making.

Joan Munden of Royston Methodist Church said: “We had a good week with up to 50 children attending each day. It was lots of fun.”
