YOUNG children can enjoy an active afternoon at the latest Morpeth Messy Church event on Saturday.
As it is being held the day after the Torch Relay comes through the town, there will be a sporting theme. Activities available will include team games, an obstacle course and balloon races.
Those attending can also make flags and medals and decorate baseball caps. Each participant will receive a medal and there will be a short act of worship and refreshments afterwards.
The event, put together by an ecumenical group from all the town’s churches, will take place at Storey Park Community Centre in St Mary’s Field between 3pm and 5pm.
All young children are invited, as long as they are accompanied by an adult.
