Recycle, reuse and reduce was the phrase of the day at the Amey Waste Education’s Eco family fun day.
The event, at the Ely Cathedral Conference Centre, taught families the importance of recycling using a range of craft and educational activities on Monday February 13.
Youngsters got stuck in to building worm hotels and learning how compost works, whilst parents enjoyed tea and cake after dropping in to Amey’s first ever repair café – which offers to repair small electrical items.
Also on offer was a craft and painting workshop with the Cambridgeshire Community Reuse and Recycling Network (CCORRN), bird feeder-making activities with staff from Wicken Fen and seed planting with staff at Denny Abbey.
An Amey spokesman said: “We successfully raised £36.10 for local Ely charity Little Miracles through our well contributed raffle.
