November saw the official grand opening event for the newly launched ‘Kids Corner’ at Runcorn Shopping City.
Community Square was brought alive from midday with a colourful event full of soft play, games, balloons and activities! Parent and baby groups were invited along to get involved and to celebrate what will be the permanent new feature at the centre.
The event also marked the launch of Shopping City’s ‘Monday Fundays’, where the centre will be partnering with community groups to offer classes and activities for young people in the local area within this space.
Dave Pearman, Shopping Centre Manager at Runcorn Shopping City, said:
“Kids Corner at Shopping City is an exciting new play area. It is an open, soft play that we invite the public to come and enjoy. It is themed, colourful and will be used to host groups and small events for family fun and educational classes for kids throughout the year.
“Our huge thanks go to Coffee King, sponsors of this event, for providing all of the food and drinks on offer – and helping us to make it such a success.
“Bluey was a particular favourite amongst our visitors, and it was a fun-filled day to launch the centre’s newest offering to the community.”
Local mum Nyah Thomas attended with her little one and said on Facebook:
“What a lovely little day today. Heidi was scared of Bluey at first, she wouldn’t go close to her but then – wouldn’t leave her alone and kept on going for hugs! Thank you, Runcorn Shopping City!”
This month, Runcorn Shopping City will also be kicking off the festive season with their official Christmas light switch on event on Saturday 18 November.
