A play scheme that has been keeping children occupied in the school holidays for more than 30 years is back where it began - at Windsor Youth and Community Centre.
The Windsor Holiday Play Scheme was started by local mums at the centre in Alma Road in 1979.
One of them was Beryl O'Rearden, whose son was four at the time.
She said: "He is 37 now. I'm a grandmother but the play scheme is still going.
"We have been at St Edward's School and Trevelyan over the years. But Trevelyan is having work carried out this year so we are back where we started at the community centre."
The play scheme ran for three days this week and will operate from Tuesday to Thursday (Aug20-22).
Activities run by the different mums included woodwork and cookery.
Some of the children made bracelets. There was even a chance to try out gymnastics in the gym.

More than 50 street parties are set to take place this weekend across the Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead and the surrounding areas.
An independent report into a Conservative councillor has found a breach of the Royal Borough’s code of conduct in a document seen by the Advertiser.
