THE Port Arcades shopping centre is celebrating the start of the festive season with some special helpers.
Last weekend shoppers were treated to the delights of the Christmas Present Elves on Saturday and the larger-than-life Cuddly Bear on Sunday.
And this coming weekend promises to be just as fun filled for shoppers and their families with a festive crafts weekend.
On Saturday and Sunday, from 10.30am-3pm youngsters can help to make Christmas cards and decorations, glitter and glue will be out in abundance for the making of cards and decorations.
Also on Saturday, local author Darron Rogers will be in the Centre to tell a festive tale children’s tale.
And free Christmas hats will be given away to all children shopping in the centre this weekend.
