CHILDREN signed up for a summer of fun.

They put their name down to take part in activities including canoeing, day trips, first aid courses and orienteering classes on Saturday.

Pennywell Youth Project encouraged the children and teenagers to get involved in the fun-days at an open day, which 168 visitors attended.

Project manager Cassandra O’Neil said: “It went better than we thought and everyone had a fantastic day.

“We wanted to attract the local community so we could highlight what we provide.”

“We also wanted to showcase our newly refurbished chill out area, that was supported through family and friends of Ivy Smith – in her memory – and Gentoo,” said Cassandra.

“And we opened our community garden in memory of Gladys Chilton, who was our chairperson for many years.”
