Children from one of North Somerset’s villages enjoyed some fresh air and fun outdoors during a half-term day trip to Cheddar.

The Congresbury Youth Partnership hosted a trip to Cheddar Gorge as part of its half-term activity programme, which also saw youngsters create Valentine’s Day crafts and treats.

The young people completed a five-mile nature walk, taking in the Gorge and Cheddar’s High Street.

They then rounded off the challenging activity by stopping for a well-deserved ice cream.

Group leader Sarah Storey said: “The group learned how to use a compass and how to read a map, thanks to Ben from Emfast who led the walk with his dog Trixie.

“Our thanks also go to Michelle, our youth worker, and our volunteer Di.”
