Ankerside’s Stay & Play to return for Valentine’s Day

Monday, 15th January 2018

LOVE is soon to be in the air at the town’s shopping centre, as Stay & Play returns for its first free session of 2018 next week.

Ankerside Shopping Centre’s monthly Stay & Play morning will return on Thursday, 25 January, where little ones will have the chance to make heart-warming gifts to take home to their loved ones.

Alongside the Valentine’s-themed fun, children along with parents, grandparents and childminders will also be able to enjoy inflatables, a bubble machine and a visit from Ankerside’s colourful Stay & Play monster between 9.30am and 11.30am.

Jeff Wigley, Ankerside Shopping Centre manager, said he is looking forward to seeing Stay & Play return throughout 2018. “The response to the centre’s monthly sessions has been excellent, so we can’t wait to continue its success during this year too.

“Throughout the morning, little ones will be able to decorate their very own chocolate gift and then make a Valentine’s card to take home to their loved ones.

“Thursday is also a chance for children to fill in their learning books that they bring along to each event. Plus, it’s a great little memento for parents and the rest of the family.

“We hope everyone has a lovely time at our Stay & Play morning next week and we can’t wait to see the children’s decorated chocolates and cards.”

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 wishing to attend with their little ones.
