Church Square Shopping Centre’s very popular Shopper Whopper Kids’ Club is to make its welcome return with more activities than ever planned for the year.
Taking place on Tuesday 13 February not only will youngsters be marking Valentine’s Day but, as this year is the 150th anniversary of the town – Shopper Whopper will be celebrating this milestone birthday.
Little visitors to the kids’ club will be getting stuck into creating their very own lanterns in acknowledgement of St Helens heritage in glass making. Children will have the opportunity to learn a little of the town’s past industry while enjoying all the lovely arts and crafts on offer.
Steve Brogan, Church Square Centre manager, said: “2018 is such a momentous year for the town and its community. St Helens is steeped in history, from our mention in the Doomsday Book through to the successful role it played throughout the industrial revolution when coal mining and glass making thrived in the town. We are extremely proud of our heritage and this year is all about celebrating this.
“As a hub for the town’s people, Church Square is playing it parts in our anniversary year and Shopper Whopper Kids’ Club is the perfect way to do this, engaging with the younger generations so they too can learn more about the great place we live in. We are all looking forward to the numerous events that are being hosted across St Helens over the course of the next 12 months.”
Held at St Mary’s Arcade, the Shopper Whopper Kids’ club will be on Tuesday 13 February from 11am until 3pm. Admission is free and parental permission is required for children attending.
