There were a few sticky moments when the toddlers decorated their own cakes at the National Childbirth Trust's birthday party in Radlett last week.

Parents and around 30 children up to the age of five attended the charity's 40th anniversary party at the United Free Church, in Station Road, on Wednesday afternoon.

The children took part in a colouring competition, cake decorating and singing, and a raffle helped to raise around £100 for the organisation.

Alyson Bright, of the Radlett, Shenley, Borehamwood and District branch, said the event was well attended and thanked all those who made donations.

"Everyone had a good time a lot of tea was drunk and the cakes that the children decorated were all served up that afternoon," she said.

The National Childbirth Trust offers advice and support to prospective parents and parents of young children, and organises social events.

It also runs the Wednesday Wigwam Club, a playgroup for children up to the age of five, at the United Free Church every Wednesday, from 2pm to 4pm.

The local branch will host a stall at Families Day at Meadow Park, in Brook Road, Borehamwood, on Saturday, July 6, from 12.30pm to 5.30pm.
