Half-term fun for youngsters with Minehead police and puppet theatre

POLICE in Minehead are coming together with youth workers to keep local youngsters active during the schools half-term break.
On Thursday and Friday, October 25 and October 26, Police Community Support Officers from Minehead and youth workers from the Somerset County youth service will be running an art project on the Seward Way Estate, in Alcombe.
Professional sculptor and model-maker Rick Ellam will be taking part in the project, which is called Shadow Puppet Theatre.
The aim will be to produce a play by the end of the two days.
PCSO Luisa Skinner said: “Children from all ages can attend free of charge and make characters for the play, help build the scenery, or compose a script.
“Refreshments will be provided, but we would ask children wear old clothes and ensure any under-10s come with an adult.
“Our message to all local children is to come along and enjoy the fun.”
The event will be held in the multi-use games area in Sandpiper Close between 11 am and 3 pm.
