Children and parents in Sandwell are being invited to enjoy a spot of spooky fun at Halloween-themed events and the price won’t give them a fright as they’re free!
Cradley Heath, Happy Faces, Rowley Springfield, Tividale and Wednesbury North Children’s Centres, all managed by Health for Living, have organised events to coincide with half term.
On Tuesday (29 October), children will go on a hunt for pumpkins and spiders, take part in craft activities and enjoy refreshments, at a family fun day at Brickhouse Playing Fields and Community Centre, Rowley Regis, from 11am-1pm.
In Tividale, families are also being invited to take part in a ghoulish Halloween-themed hunt and enjoy refreshments at a fun day in Tividale Park, off Dudley Road East, on Friday (1 November) from 11am-1pm.
Creepy crafts, face painting, cake decorating and ghoulish glitter tattoos will also be on offer at a Halloween fun day at Wednesbury North Children’s Centre, Woden Road North, on Thursday (31 October) from 9.30am-11am, 12pm-1.30pm and 2.30pm-4pm.
Carol Thompson from Health for Living, said: “We know how expensive it can be to keep children entertained during the school holidays which is why we wanted to organise these cost-effective events.
“It’s also a great chance to have a bit of Halloween fun, so why not come along, enjoy and find out what other services your local children’s centres have to offer your family.”
Both events in Rowley Regis and Tividale are free and numbers are unlimited. There is a small charge of £1 per person at the Wednesbury event and numbers are limited. To book your place at the Wednesbury event, call Wednesbury North Children’s Centre on 0121 526 5571.
