Milton Methodist Church hosted the family fun day and put on an array of crafts, games and challenges for children to enjoy.

The theme for the event was hidden treasure and youngsters enjoyed finding chocolate coins, covering money boxes with jewels and creating treasure chests to store their wares in.

Games included a ping pong pearl challenge and a treasure map quest.

Those with a sweet tooth were also able to decorate biscuits.
