CHILDREN took part in all sorts of flying-themed activities as part of a free family fun day in Weston Youth Centre.

Youngsters made birdboxes from wood, enjoyed a bouncy castle and took part in an Asian drumming workshop at the centre in Coleridge Road.

Barnados, North Somerset Council and Alliance Homes organised the day with contributions from Avon Wildlife Trust.

While time flew by for children, parents discussed plans for the future of youth services after North Somerset Council announced a raft of cuts to provisions for young people, due to take effect in April.

Mary Morgan, of Weston 
Neighbourhood Management Team, said: “Young people and their families were also helping to create a vision for positive activities for children.

“During the day more than 40 local people signed up to get involved in 
supporting the vision, either by acting as a trustee, becoming part of a managing committee or contributing time to help activities run.”
