BISCUITS, bird-feeders, brain-teasers and bible songs were all features of a holiday bible club at The Ark Baptist Chapel in Dunmow.

Organiser Heidi Knight, said: "We all had a great time. We sung songs where the children had learnt the actions and spelt words with cards, iced biscuits, made bird feeders out of pine cones, and had competitions and quizzes where the children won prizes."

Many of the games and activities were on a Bible theme and encouraged the children to use creative skills, team work, and their memory of bible stories.

The holiday club has been running for four years and Mrs Knight says they have been becoming increasingly popular. This year was fully booked thanks to a small notice in the Broadcast.
