A FREE fun and learning day for all ages takes place in Ramsey, on Saturday - and there are even free buses to and from the event.
The session, called Something For You, is at Ramsey Baptist Church, in Great Whyte, and includes free classes on computer skills, flower arranging, making greetings cards, digital photography, aerobics, and first aid training with St John Ambulance.
There will also be a free-to-enter balloon race all morning in Ramsey Market with a prize for the balloon which travels the furthest.
For children, there will be entertainment with Mr Magic and face-painting, drinks and light refreshments. The day is sponsored by Ramsey Learning Community, backed by Huntingdonshire District Council with money from The East of England Development Agency (EEDA).

It is hoped that the free learning and fun day in Ramsey will be the first of several community projects in the town.
By the end of this month, the organisers, Ramsey Learning Community, based in the Community Learning Centre in Great Whyte, are hoping to have four "resource boxes".
- 1 The Windmill pub is set to reopen after extensive refurbishment
- 2 Life is sweet! Cheesecake emporium opens in Brampton
- 3 Woman dies after being hit by lorry
- 4 Celebration of food and drink at town's first street food festival
- 5 Riley turns imagination into reality with best-selling adventure book
- 6 Tudor history and famous Chinese Bridge in Godmanchester
- 7 Paedophile foiled by undercover officer
- 8 Rainbow alliance set out their stall for Cambridgeshire
- 9 Do you have items of history for nostalgia group?
- 10 Godmanchester community pulled together throughout the pandemic
These are boxes of equipment which they will be able to lend free to community groups.
Each box will contain different things but will include computers, printers, laminators, guillotines and digital cameras.
The project is also inviting people to come forward willing to be "learning champions" or tutors.
