A group of imaginative youngsters helped transform Ely Museum into Neverland for the museum’s Peter Pan craft morning.

The museum invited five to 11-year-olds down to Market Street yesterday (April 7) to make figurines, pirate hats and the infamous ticking crocodile from the classic Disney film as part of its half-term activities schedule.

Assistant curator for the museum, Sarah Brown, said the afternoon was enjoyed by all.

She said: “It went very well. The children had a great time making the figurines and pirate hats and they really enjoyed the fun trail afterwards.”

The Peter Pan craft morning was preceded by a ‘Down the Bottom of the Garden’ morning on March 31, where children made and decorated their own woodland creatures.
