Take the hassle out of the Christmas shopping by dropping the children off at Grimsby’s Fishing Heritage Centre for a host of free festive activities.
Children can enjoy art and crafts, gift making and can watch traditional Christmas movies, allowing parents to finish their Christmas shopping in peace and without any prying events.
Councillor Steve Hocknell, portfolio holder for culture, leisure and healthier communities, said: “Christmas shopping can be a stressful time for parents, so these activities will hopefully ease the pressure.
“Activities will be running every Thursday during late night shopping and on Saturdays in the run up to Christmas. There’s even the chance for children to make their own home-made gift for mum or grandma and get creative with their own Christmas tree decorations.”
Parents can drop off their children for the two-hour workshops if they are aged seven and over. Younger children can attend, but must be accompanied during the workshop by an adult.
Activities run from 6pm to 8pm on Thursday and from 10am to noon and 1pm to 3pm on Saturdays. To book, call the centre on (01472) 323345.
