STAY & PLAY will be returning to Ankerside Shopping Centre next Thursday for a fantastic morning of free friendship-themed fun and games.
With World Friendship Day just around the corner, Stay & Play will return on Thursday, 27 July, where little ones will have the chance to make friendship bracelets and decorate cut outs of their best friend.
Alongside all the friendship fun, children along with mums, dads and grandparents will also be able to enjoy inflatables, a bubble machine and a visit from Ankerside’s colourful monster between 9.30am and 11.30am.
Jeff Wigley, Ankerside Shopping Centre manager, said he is looking forward to celebrating World Friendship Day at the centre’s monthly Stay & Play. “The response to the launch of Stay & Play in April has been brilliant and we can’t wait to welcome it back next week,” he said.
“Throughout the morning, little ones will have the chance to get crafty with friendship bracelets and best friend cut outs. Plus, some of our regular guests will be heading off to primary school at the end of summer, so we will be hosting a mini graduation ceremony for them.
“Thursday is also a chance for children to fill in their learning books that they bring along to each event and it’s a great little memento for parents, especially for those who are going off to school in September.
“We hope everyone has a lovely time at our Stay & Play morning next week and we can’t wait to see the children creating bracelets for their best friends.”
The Stay & Play fun takes place from 9.30am to 11.30am in Druckers Café on the last Thursday of each month and is free for anyone looking after children to attend with the little ones.
