FAMILIES and community groups from Parson Drove got to make items used for the Hindu holiday Diwali by making lamps and patterns as part of Cambridgeshire County Council's Family Learning Week.
A total of 12 families and members of the Parson Drove Women's Institute went to the village's Payne Primary School for the family learning project.
After a tutorial with artists Jane Bower and Elsie Clitheroe, people made their own Diwali lamps, clay lamps and Rangoli patterns, using seeds, beans and pulses.
It also saw the launch of the Vital Communities project in Parson Drove, which will see Year 2 children at the Payne School look at celebrations, especially the Diwali festival.
