Children who attended a summer holiday activity day at Ely Museum received lessons in the art of knitting. Tuesday's session was called Make Do & Mend and youngsters were given the chance to knit, crochet and darn. Other sessions held during the last three weeks have included Victorian Dressing-up and Tie Dying.

The last activity day takes place on Tuesday and will be on Brilliant Button Craft. There is no need to book and the activity runs from

11am-4pm. Cost is £1 per child and accompanying adults are free.
