Families have braved the wet weather in Ipswich this week to enjoy a packed programme of half-term activities.

From sporting activities such as trampolining and football to roller skating, bouncy play and three day swimming courses, Ipswich Borough Council has laid on dozens of events for the youngsters to enjoy.

At Christchurch Mansion on Wednesday, children got their hands stuck into some butter making in the kitchens, learning how to make their own dairy spreads and treats.

On Friday, Holywells Park hosted a group of young wardens who enjoyed doing their bit for conservation by building bug hotels from plant pots and woodeen pallets.

A borough council spokesman said: “Every school holiday we have a great selection of sport and activity at all of our sports centres, parks, Crown Pools, Ipswich Museum and Christchurch Mansion.”
