YOUNG Birkenhead shoppers went under the sea for the first in a series of kids clubs for the summer holidays.  Children made the most of the first SnapperJaxx kids club at The Grange and Pyramids Shopping Centre in Birkenhead which included singalongs, theatrical performances, story telling and crafts – all with a distinctly watery theme.

The SnapperJaxx kids clubs will run every Friday of the summer holiday, up to and including 30 August 2013, with imaginative clubs which have a new theme every week including Jungle Swing Thing, Zappy Zoo, Bug's Life, Roaring with Dinosaurs and Roll Up to the Circus.

Pictured with their handmade sea creatures are Bray Dolan and Demi-Leigh Wilson.

There will be a host of activities to be enjoyed at the performer-led clubs which are held inside an eye catching inflatable structure and will run from 12 pm to 5 pm.

Derek Millar, Commercial Director for The Grange and Pyramids Shopping Centre, said:- "We want to celebrate the long summer break with our young shoppers and our aim was not just to have a one-off event, but to create a series of fun playtime sessions for the children which would last the whole holiday. They are completely free and it gives parents the chance to also take advantage of all the great retailers we have here including great high street names such as River Island, Marks and Spencer, Next and our valued independents such as B D and Kay and Hannons. With our terrific food court and selection of cafes, we are turning the centre into the perfect family day out which need not cost the earth with parking only £2 for the whole day."
