Youngsters got to experience all the fun of the seaside but without the long drive – and the sandy sandwiches!

Little Goslings Children’s Centre, in North Street, put on a beach-themed free event on Tuesday.

Children and babies, aged up to five, were encouraged to come dressed as pirates and mermaids or in their summer clothes for the day.

While at the session they got to enjoy a treasure hunt, face painting, arts and crafts, music and 
singing, messy play and other activities.

Lesley Murdoch, community engagement and volunteer coordinator for Spurgeons, said: “We all had a really great day and would like to encourage more families to come along and join in the fun over the summer.

“Little Goslings is open every Monday and Tuesday from 9am to 5pm throughout the holidays and we will have a range of activities throughout the summer to keep the little ones happy and entertained.”
