MONKS Cross Shopping Park is hosting a day of "back to school" fun activities for shoppers next Saturday, August 19.

There will be free activities including craft workshops, number riddles, tongue twisters, games and more, all led by Little Miss ABC You Back in School.

The shopping centre's Katherine Sharp said they hoped the activities would help make the "back to school shop" something to look forward to for children and their families. "We’ve got all kinds of classroom themed activities for them to get involved with on the day, as well as everything you need to get them ready for the start of the new term," she said.
