A group has been launched to give respite to carers in South Cambridgeshire.
West Anglia Crossroads held its first meeting at the Eternit Sports and Social Club in Meldreth.

A range of activities designed to improve clients' communication skills were available, including cooking, games, massage, therapy, and arts and crafts.
