To celebrate the school holidays in style last week, there was free Easter fun in a Royston park.
The event, held by North Herts District Council on Wednesday, saw children get stuck into activities, including inflatable fun, Easter-themed arts and crafts, sports and play equipment for all ages and the added attraction this year of a ‘Big Paint’ area, which saw children get creative and messy. Jodie Robertson from NHDC’s active communities team, said: “It was a fantastic day at Priory Gardens, with arts and crafts, sports and play activities keeping lots of children entertained and happy.
“Look out for further free events planned for the summer school holidays.”
Over in Melbourn, children were put through the paces when they joined in the fun and games at the sports centre’s holiday play scheme. Activities included a swimming, fun games, trampolining and colouring competitions.
Graham Johnson-Mack, manager of Melbourn Sports Centre, said: “These holiday schemes are always well attended, but this year more than ever, with more than 200 children attending.
