Families put their craft skills to the test when they made chocolate boxes at Gaywood Library.

Community librarian Elena Parkin said around 14 people attended the session, which was part of the library’s In Good Company programme.

It was led by Christine Bond, who had a range of craft materials for both youngsters and adults to use.

Ms Parkin said: “They were making boxes for chocolates to take home as presents. It was a nice activity for both adults and families.”

Budding young detectives will be in action at the library on Thursday, August 10 from 10.30am to noon for a summer sleuth holiday activity which also encompasses the national summer reading challenge.

Wednesday, August 23 will see Dare to Dance, another family-orientated event, focussing on health and encouraging exercise.
