YOUNGSTERS can keep themselves busy during the Easter break by taking part in a variety of community sessions.

Four days of activities have been planned by the community staff at St Hild’s CE School, in Hartlepool’s King Oswy Drive.

Forest adventure, cooking, arts and crafts and street dance all feature in the programme of classes.

Julie Fletcher, community manager at the school, said: “We always organise a programme to keep youngsters busy over the Easter break.

“It’s a varied programme which hopefully will prove very popular, as it has done in the past.”

The classes get underway next Tuesday, April 2, with a cold cookery class running from 10am-noon.

That will be followed on the same day by an arts and crafts session from 1pm-3pm.

Crafts sessions will run from Tuesday to Friday, April 5, all with a different theme, from 1pm-3pm.

Fans of hartlepool dance troupe Ruff Diamond can give street dance a go at a session next Wednesday, April 3, from 10am-noon.

No previous street dancing experience is required for those wanting to take part in the class.

An all-day forest adventure will take place on Thursday, April 4.

The adventure day will be provided by the West View Project although those taking part must bring sturdy shoes and a packed lunch and children must be accompanied by an adult.

Then keen cooks will be pleased to know another cold cookery class will be held on Friday, April 5 from 10am-noon.

Mrs Fletcher thanked The Artrium, in Park Road, which is working with the school to provide the majority of the arts and crafts sessions.

All of the sessions cost £1.50 each with the exception of the forest adventure which is £3.50.
