A record number of families enjoyed a Halloween themed day at one of the newly formed 'pop-up' re:charge support sessions in Maidenhead.
More than 11 parents and their children attended the seventh Revive and Restore (R & R) event at Larchfield Community Centre in Desborough Park on Tuesday from 10am-2pm.
Revive and Restore was set-up by former re:charge staff member Hannah Bronniman-Lucas.
It followed the closure of the King Street cafe in April which provided support for struggling families.
Hannah, who lives in Cookham said: "Parents are so pleased. The reception has been really good and the numbers are going up each week."
Children enjoyed decorating biscuits and Halloween crosswords as well art with autumn leaves.
Parents can also attend R & R on Thursdays from 10am-3pm at Maidenhead’s Quaker meeting house in West Street and at St Peter’s Church Centre in St Peter’s Road at the same time as of Wednesday, November 13.
Paramedics were called to the scene of a medical emergency in Maidenhead on Monday morning (June 27).
A teenager who died after getting into difficulty in the Jubilee River has been described as a ‘gentle giant’ in a tribute from his school.
