ROYSTON Extended Schools initiative's summer activity programme has been hailed as a great success.
Activities have been taking place for youngsters of all ages every week during the summer holidays.
Drop in Art sessions have proved to be particularly popular, and the latest of these took place at the Market Hill Rooms, Royston, last week.
Extended Schools co-ordinator Cathy Curtis said: "We've had over 40 children here, with a real range of ages, so I think that shows we're catering for lots of different needs.
"Today they have been working on some pop-art, and last week we were customising t-shirts."
Mayor of Royston, Cllr Rod Kennedy, was on hand to admire the children's work.
