Proud mums and dads looked on as nine children from the Daventry area collected Arts Award qualifications from town Mayor Ron Fox at Daventry Library last week.

During the summer, family learning and the library service supported a group of families as they worked on and learnt more about projects including jewellery making, willow weaving, stop animation. Children gained some hands on experience working on a variety of project, as well as keeping a log of all their work which was sent away to assessed for the award.

Cllr Robin Brown, county council cabinet member for public health and wellbeing, said: “This project offered families a wonderful opportunity to try new things and learn some fantastic new skills.
