Low cost crafts a hit

Accrington Observer - - YOUR VIEWS -

OSWALDTWISTLE Mills have hailed their ‘low cost craft ac­tiv­i­ties’ over the sum­mer hol­i­days a ‘huge suc­cess’.

More than 2,000 chil­dren took part in 18 dif­fer­ent events over the six-week break.

Tracy Leem­ing, mar­ket­ing man­ager, said craft ac­tiv­i­ties were aimed at fam­i­lies across Hyn­d­burn and Lan­cashire and that the feed­back has been ‘amaz­ing’ with some at­tend­ing mul­ti­ple events.

She said: “We have been amazed by the re­sponse we have had to our chil­dren’s sum­mer events this year.

“We de­vel­oped our craft ac­tiv­i­ties and fun days at the mill due to there be­ing a lack of ac­tiv­i­ties in the area over the school hol­i­days.

“Our aim was to pro­vide low-cost ac­tiv­i­ties from £1 to £3 that fam­i­lies in the area could en­joy with­out break­ing the bank and it’s been a great suc­cess.”

The events also raised £200 to­wards their two cho­sen char­i­ties this year, which are Ron­ald McDon­ald House at Royal Manch­ester Chil­dren’s Hospi­tal and the ‘Na­tion of Life­savers’ cam­paign for The Bri­tish Heart Foun­da­tion.
