Dozens took part in the sunny course on Saturday (March 30), wearing sports gear and rubber chickens to welcome the joys of spring.

Staff, children and parents from Millfield Primary School in Littleport also took part with their Millfield Movers group.

It comes as part of Cambridgeshire County Council’s Let’s Get Moving scheme to help inactive residents get active.

They help promote and support all of the activities going on across the district, help initiate new opportunities where there is a demand and to provide support to individuals who need it.
