children from Ripley and Kilburn enjoyed a sporty half-term after taking part in an inter-village Olympics competition.

The miniature games were hosted throughout the week at Ripley Leisure Centre, Lea Green and Kilburn Village Hall and gave the children a chance to have fun and get some exercise.

Around 15 children, aged from four to 11, took part in the week-long series of specially-coached sessions that included tennis, cricket and dodgeball.

Coach at Ripley Leisure Centre Lauren Bestwick helped organise the games.

She said: “We ran different sessions in different villages and the kids thoroughly enjoyed themselves.”
