The Cambridge Chinese Cultural School and Trumpington Meadows Delivery and Action Group held the four-hour celebrations at the weekend.

They marked Chinese new year with calligraphy, lantern and dumpling making and balloon modelling.

But the highlight of the day was the lion dance held in the local centre at the start of a special Chinese market, with the ‘God of Fortune’ wishing good luck to all those attending.
