Belper-based Fleet Arts have been running a host of activities for local children during the summer holidays.

Around 25 children have taken part in workshops ran by Fleet Arts Children’s Holiday activities group.

The programme and ages have varied, with workshops for 5-12-year-olds on banners, bunting and puppets.

The workshops are supported with funding from Belper Town Council.

Sarah Laman, who is co-ordinating the project, says the workshops provide a fun environment for youngsters during the holiday.

She said: “This was quite a fiddley workshop but they all worked really well.

“Some of the children have come every day and some have come for just one or two of the days.

“But we have also had a number of children coming for the first time.

“We always welcome new children to join in, and we can add people to our e-mailing list so that they get the information directly.”
