A SHOPPING centre helped keep children amused during half-term with a crafty workshop.

Youngsters visiting the Chantry Centre got help making cards, flowers and banners for soon-to-be-here Mother’s Day.

Steve Cotney, manager of the Chantry Centre, said: “The craft workshops are part of a year long programme for members of our Eco Kids Club. Each month, in Chantry Court, there will be fun filled activities to keep the children amused whilst helping them to learn and, over the coming months, will include crafts on a dinosaur theme as well as ideas for Father’s Day.”

Centre mascot, Chantry Bear, helped the children with their crafts.
