A NUMBER of art-based activities were held across the borough of Wokingham for families to enjoy over Easter.

Each of the events were based within local community facilities so that they were easy to access.

The activities included slime making, paper art, making a community mural at Rainbow Park in Winnersh and making food-based art including using pasta and eggs at St Mary and St John Church in Finchampstead.

Mark Redfearn, lead for localities services at Wokingham Borough Council, said: “It’s great so many people took some time during the Easter holidays to enjoy doing something fun and creative within their local communities.

“We will definitely build on the success of this year’s events when we plan our future community activities, including the clear popularity of slime and reptiles with young people.”

On Norreys Avenue a total of fifteen teenagers joined council officers to take pictures of the community, highlighting what they are proud of in their community and what they would like to change.

The Norreys Avenue community also took part in the Reptile Café, where over 250 residents attended the event and held a snake or lizard.

A local resident who attended the reptile cafe, added: “It was brilliant seeing it so busy, best afternoon out we’ve had in a long time.”
