YOUNGSTERS Shannon and Coby had their faces painted as part of a packed week of activities during half-term in Ely.

The activities week, organised by the Barns Young People's Forum, has given youngsters a host of exciting activities to keep them active while they are off school, including football coaching, mask-making and canvas art.

The young people's forum, set up last year, includes local residents as well as representatives from Hereward Housing, Cambridgeshire police, East Cambridgeshire District Council and ADeC.

Jo Fitzpatrick, Barns community development officer, said: "The activities are open to children and young people up to 19 years old who not only live on the Barns estate but anywhere in Ely."
