Ghostly goings on during
Halloween fun at Church Square Shopping Centre
YOUNGSTERS have been getting into the
spirit of Halloween as they enjoyed the ghostly goings on at
Church Square Shopping Centre this ˝ term.
Children created spooky lanterns to carry when they go trick or treating, at the
popular Shopper Whopper Kids Club.
The free workshops, in St Mary's Arcade, proved a hit with
families including:- Lyndsey Molyneux and sons Rocco and Roman, who are pupils
at St Mary and St Thomas' Primary School.
"The boys have had a great time making lanterns. We came
down as we'd seen the posters. We've been to these events before, they are
really good and the boys love them. The lanterns they've made are brilliant and
the boys are looking forward to showing their dad Karl what they've made. These
events are a great idea as it helps to keep children occupied during the school
holidays and breaks the day up." said Lyndsey, from St Helens Town
Tilly Clifton Sprigg, who attends Legh Vale nursery in Haydock,
also made a lantern to carry when she goes trick or treating with big brother
Jake and sister Katie.
Dad Glenn, from Haydock, said:- "Tilly has had a lovely
time making a lantern and going on the bouncy castle in the market. This is a
brilliant idea as it's hard to keep children entertained in the holidays,
especially when the weather's bad. Tilly loves her lantern and will take it with
her when she dresses up as a witch for Halloween with her brother and sister."
Church Square Shopping Centre manager Steven Brogan said:-
"We know that youngsters love our Shopper Whopper events during the school
holidays and our latest Halloween workshop has proved really popular. The
feedback we get from families is that they really appreciate having free fun
sessions where youngsters can make craft items to take home. It's not always
easy to find things to do as a family that are free and close to home. It helps
make a shopping trip more enjoyable for children as well."
