FREE family fun at Spinning Gate Shopping Centre in Leigh proved to be a hit last week.

The centre organised a range of children's craft workshop sessions from February 17 to 21 from 11am to 3pm with more than 600 creations made in that time.

The most popular session was Wonderful Wednesday when more than 160 children got involved in the free rainbow and butterfly scratch art.

Centre manager Karen Cox said: “We received some amazing feedback from families who took part in our free half term activities.

"We are absolutely delighted with the feedback we receive, and of course, watching the little ones enjoy getting crafty."

More free children's craft workshop sessions will be in store for little ones for Mother's Day. Families are invited to join in the sessions on Saturday, March 21 between 11am - 3pm when they can decorate spiral hearts for mum.

Mother's visiting the centre on March 21 will also be treated to free chocolate giveaways to celebrate Mother's Day the following day.
