A record-breaking bubble artist paid a visit to Saffron Walden for the half-term.

Saffron Walden Town Council has said that it is delighted with the response to its four free half-term events to encourage children and grown ups back into Saffron Walden.

The events sold out, and Colette Kerr, town council events officer, said that she is delighted to invite visitors back to the Town Hall.

She said: "The Welcome Back Fund has given us the opportunity to hold free community events open to everyone.

"In doing so, it will encourage people back into our town centre safely to support local businesses."
