GRAND­PAR­ENTS GO FREE DAYS

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - OPINION -

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.”
