Volunteers ran a number of fun art and craft activities and games for families at St Andrew's Church, in Church Street.

The youngsters spent the morning making prayer catchers, lighthouses and stained glass lanterns which they were able to take home to display.

The children decorated candle cakes, before tucking into them.

Scratch art activities and puzzles were also on offer at the church to keep the youngsters busy.
