Youngsters were invited to come dressed as their favourite superheroes for the party at Ely Child and Family Centre during the morning on Wednesday May 30.

They took part in activities including super slime, mask making and hand paintings.

Cllr Simon Bywater, Cambridgeshire County Council’s children and young people committee chairman, said: “These fun half-term events are a great example of the type of activities and support on offer across our network of child and family centres and zones for families in the county.
