Evie Voss started doing work experience at The Craft Shop, in March, and now she is running her own weekly craft sessions there for youngsters.

The 16-year-old from March has impressed shop owner Katherine Nightingale with her enthusiasm and planning for the Saturday morning sessions, which attract mainly youngsters aged from six to nine.

Evie, a pupil at King's School, Peterborough, went to the shop as part of her weekly work experience sessions.

"I told her she could do her own sessions if she promoted it and thought up her own projects," said Katherine.

"She has done some lovely projects such as paper craft, papier mache and iron-on beads. I think it is great that she has done this on her own."

Each 90-minute session costs £4. For further details, contact The Craft Shop Tel 01354 651414.
