Children at a village primary school have a new before- and after-school club.
The club, which is called Penguins, has been opened at Croxton Kerrial Primary School and also makes use of the village hall.
Headteacher Anne Harvey said: “The need for the club arose after the sad and untimely death of a local child minder, who had cared for many of the Croxton Kerrial children and whose own children had attended our school.
“The club has been named after her favourite animal, penguins, in her memory.”
At the official opening ceremony, Priest in Charge the Rev Rowena Bass blessed the new club and cut the ribbon to formally open it.
