GRANDPARENTS GO FREE DAYS
GULLIVER’S LAND Milton Keynes GULLIVER’S theme parks are celebrating National Grandparents Day with free entry for all grandparents later this month.
Over the weekend of September 10 and 11 two grandparents will be admitted free with one full paying person at all three of Gulliver’s family theme parks – Gulliver’s Kingdom in Matlock Bath, Gulliver’s Land in Milton Keynes and Gulliver’s World in Warrington.
Research by the Centre for the Modern Family revealed that four in 10 grandparents regularly provide childcare for their grandchildren, with one in four babysitting once or twice a week.
A separate report from insurance company Rias reported that grandparent childminders had increased by more than 60% over the past five years, reaching 9.8 million.
Grandparents Weekend is one of Gulliver’s most popular special offers showing that you’re never too old for a fantastic day of family fun.
The family-run theme parks provide memorable days out for family groups, including grandparents, throughout the year. Catering for children aged two to 13, it offers a host of rides, attractions, experiences and entertainment at its three sites.
Ray Phillips, the founder of Gulliver’s and grandfather to six children, said: “Grandparents these days take a more active role in the lives of their grandchildren, and that includes me and my wife Hilary. It’s a chance to relive the days when our own children were younger – without the sleepless nights.
“Gulliver’s is the perfect place for a day of traditional family fun with rides and attractions for everyone. We reckon all those hardworking and much loved grandmas and grandpas deserve a great day out on us to show them how much they’re appreciated and to bring smiles to the faces of the whole family.”
