Youngsters have been busy showing off their creative skills over the school half-term, making impressive graffiti paintings.

Congresbury Youth Partnership has hosted a jam-packed week of activities for youngsters this week which has taught them a range of new skills.

On Monday, children took part in a graffiti workshop, which showed them how to make impressive canvasses with spray paint.

They also took a trip to Barleywood in Wrington to learn how to make apple juice.

The youth partnership, based in Kent Road, has plenty planned for children in the coming weeks, including three extended Saturday sessions in December, and the group hopes more youngsters get involved.
