FAMILIES enjoyed a free day of activities at a Daventry church on Saturday afternoon.

The Grace Space Daventry project is organised by Churches Together in the town.

The aim of the sessions is to get families engaging together in a range of different activities and games.

Saturday’s event was held at the town’s United Reformed Church, in Foundry Place.

There were crafts, games and refreshments on offer for parents and children.

And the main theme of the afternoon was ‘names and what they mean’.

Organiser Ali Middleton said: “On Saturday we all investigated the meaning of our names.

“We also wrote our names in chocolate and made named door hangers with the children. It went very well and we had a good laugh.

“We had around 37 children come along with their parents and other family members.

“As well as focusing on names we also got all the children to do their family tree.

“The idea of the sessions is to get families spending more time together than they might normally do.

“It’s a good chance for families to do different activities together and have some fun.”

The Grace Space Daventry activity sessions are held every two months at the church.

They are free for everyone to attend and newcomers are always welcome.
