THERE was half-term fun for school children across Chard this week as youngsters took on an array of activities.

Cresta Leisure Centre put on a variety of events throughout the week which saw children try their hand at a range of sports.

Staff provided activities that helped children test out their co-ordination, balance and communication skills.

Families also enjoyed themselves at Ferne Animal Sanctuary despite the dreary weather conditions.

Youngsters met some of the sanctuary’s animals, which have been re-homed.
