Children to have hopping time at Stay & Play

Tuesday, 20th March 2018

LITTLE ones are being invited to the town’s shopping centre next week for Easter-themed fun and games at its monthly Stay & Play morning.

Ankerside Shopping Centre’s Stay & Play will return between 9.30am and 11.30am on Thursday, 29 March where the children of Tamworth will have the chance to have egg-cellent fun decorating their very own Easter bunnies and making themed hats.

As well as the Easter 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.

Jeff Wigley, Ankerside Shopping Centre manager, said this is a great way to celebrate Easter with the little ones. “The sessions so far this year have been brilliant with activities for Valentine’s Day and Mother’s Day, so we’re excited to see lots of children returning next week for Easter.

“Throughout the morning, visitors will be able to get creative by decorating their very own polystyrene bunny as well as making an Easter bonnet to take home,” he said. “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.

“Stay & Play is a fantastic way to get our Easter celebrations started here at Ankerside and with our free parking on Good Friday and Easter Monday – it’s sure to be a brilliant bank holiday,” Jeff said.

“The fun will continue into the school break too with a visit from Namco and its free bowling alley on Friday 6 and Saturday 7 April. We hope everyone has a lovely time and we can’t wait to see the children’s decorated bunnies.”

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 youngsters.
