People with disabilities have been recycling bowling skittles into unique works of art at a Rainham day service.

Adults at the Avelon Road Centre in Avelon Road have been using recycled materials to transform disused bowling skittles into Daleks, horse jockeys, penguins and many more creative designs.

Run by Havering Council, the day service offers creative activities and experiences for adults with learning disabilities.

The centres next challenge is to create a 2D life size version of the Mayor of Havering.

With materials provided by Jerram Falkus Construction LTD, the skittle is due to go on display at the town hall this week.
