Have your say

Even if you haven’t got those precious tickets to see the Games themselves, you can still have the greatest time as excitement builds to fever pitch leading up to tomorrow’s opening ceremony.

Children got crafty at an Olympics-themed Saturday afternoon of activities in Spalding’s United Reformed Church in Pinchbeck Road.

They made paper sailing boats and raced them almost as hard as the Olympic sailors will be doing at Weymouth and Portland Harbour.

Some of them played badminton outside the hall and a good day for children of all ages was crowned by making and wearing their own Olympic medals.

The next ‘messy church’ craft afternoon will be in Autumn half term.
