Hillstreet Shopping Centre is celebrating the extra-long weekend this Spring Bank with some good old fashioned family fun.
Families are invited to celebrate one of the liveliest seasons of the year with a free Spring Fair hosted by the Boro Becks team.
The event takes place at the Berwick Hills allotment site from 11am to 3pm on Saturday, April 14.
Joining the team will be Animal Story with seasonal live animal displays, handling sessions and an art and storytelling tipi where children can listen to magical tales about the beck valleys.
There will be children’s crafts, willow weaving, facepainting and a community barbecue provided by the Ormesby Beck Friendship Group.
Chris Corbett, Community Outreach Officer for the Boro Becks team, said: “The fair promises to be a wonderful way to bring in the new season with something for everyone.
“The event has also been validated by the Children’s University so bring your passports and record the time spent at the fair to go towards your award.”
The Living Waterways team are also coming along with watery crafts and competitions so dress for the weather and drop in.
Berwick Hills Allotment site is by the sculptured gateway, off Bradhope Road and opposite Burnsall Road.
Note that there is limited on-street parking near the site. People attending in cars are advised to park carefully with respect for residents.
