Club lights up summer
A church's holiday club has been hailed a success.
The week-long Summer Special holiday club was held at Broadway Methodist Church, in Cullercoats.
More than 70 children aged four to 11 enjoyed games, dancing, singing, painting and a bouncy castle.
The older group of children made a huge sculpture of the Spire of Light and also created a graffiti wall.
This year the title of the holiday club was Guardians of Ancora, based around an imaginary city of hope and light set in a land of darkness and fear. The children who attended were invited to be Guardians and were sent out on dangerous quests into the Mistlands to bring back stories.
