CHILDREN got "crafty" this Easter, thanks to a playscheme that has just received a cash injection from a generous councillor.

Kids in the Unlimited playscheme, based in the Hilltop Community Centre, Crest Road, High Wycombe, made the most of their new digital camera and arts and crafts materials that were bought for them with a £460 donation from Wycombe District Councillor Darren Hayday.

Cllr Hayday, the councillor for the Booker and Cressex ward, chose to donate his ward budget aimed to help "wellbeing" in the town to a scheme that specifically helps youngsters.

He said: "I was delighted to see the money has been well used and that the children who attend the playscheme are having fun and making things with the new materials that have been purchased."

Play leader Natasha Pearce said: "The playscheme is primarily run by volunteers and we are delighted to receive this money from Cllr Hayday to help fund our activities."

The playscheme, which has been running for more than two years now, focuses on African and Caribbean culture. Kids' activities include learning dub poetry, Caribbean folklore and gospel music.
