A GIANT Jenga set, snakes and ladders and play cars and bikes – just some of the goodies youngsters will be able to get their hands on in St Helens town centre this Easter.
A specially created ‘garden’ is set to dominate Church Square between Friday, March 30 and Saturday, April 21 – when children will also be able to tackle climbing frames, watch Punch and Judy shows, enjoy face painting and climb aboard mini funfair rides.
It’s a great garden giveaway – with all the fab, fun activities absolutely free for the three week event.
St Helens Council’s Cabinet Member for Urban Regeneration and Housing Councillor Andy Bowden said: “As the weather starts to improve, the garden will provide a great backdrop for everything else that’s happening in our town centre.
“We’re hoping to give local businesses a real shot in the arm with this event – and tempt people along to sample the great range of shops, restaurants and places to visit. By opening the garden this Easter we’ll be adding a new family-day-out dimension.”
The garden is one of the first major events of this year’s busy town centre programme. It will be open daily (except Sundays) between 10am and 5pm.
