CHILDREN are making the most of the summer holidays - getting messy and loving it - in activity fun days.

St Mark’s Church held its fourth Holiday Club for youngsters in the area, on the theme of Planet Protectors in line with the Diocese of York’s Year of Environment celebrations.

Alison Leigh, who runs the playscheme with Reverend Mike Leigh, said it was a fantastic week with 15 volunteers helping out to make it a success for the children.

She said: “The theme was Planet Protectors and we focused on the story of creation throughout the week, helped by the Potty Professors who explained different aspects of the environment.

“They’ve made giant worlds from papier mache, snow globes looking at water, clay faces, bird feeders, and elephants from recycled milk cartons.”

The Holiday Club was rounded off with a family fun day held on the Church lawn.

Mrs Leigh added: “It’s been a messy, sticky week but so much fun! The children loved it, they’ve really thrown themselves into it, it’s been fantastic.”
