It’s great news for par­ents

Paisley Daily Express - - Front Page -

Par­ents are get­ting the chance to do their Christ­mas shop­ping with­out wor­ry­ing about keep­ing their chil­dren oc­cu­pied.

In the busy run- up to Christ­mas, Drop ‘n’ Shop ac­tiv­ity camps are be­ing run by Ren­frew­shire Leisure at sports cen­tres.

This means par­ents can take their chil­dren along to the Drop ‘ N’ Shop and then head off on their own to buy this year’s Christ­mas presents.

And while mum and dad hit the shops, young­sters will be hav­ing fun and games with Ren­frew­shire Leisure staff at ac­tiv­ity ses­sions be­tween 10am and 3pm.

The first Drop ‘n’ Shop ac­tiv­ity day is be­ing held at John­stone Com­mu­nity Sports Hub on Satur­day and the fol­low­ing Satur­day, De­cem­ber 16, the ac­tiv­ity camp moves to Ren­frew Leisure Cen­tre.

On Sun­day, De­cem­ber 17, Drop ‘n’ Shop is at the ONX, in Lin­wood; Thurs­day, De­cem­ber 21, at Ersk­ine Sports Cen­tre and on Fri­day, De­cem­ber 22, at The La­goon, in Pais­ley.

The ac­tiv­ity camps cost £10 per child.

Chief ex­ec­u­tive of Ren­frew­shire Leisure, Joyce McKel­lar, said: “With a mil­lion and one things to do at this time of year, pre­par­ing for the big day can be very stress­ful for the grown-ups.

“And ask­ing your kids to trail round the shops might not be the favourite ac­tiv­ity for young­sters.

“So, we’re giv­ing par­ents the chance to drop their kids off at one of our leisure cen­tres where they’ll have loads of fun and games with our fully-trained leisure staff, then the par­ents can get on with the se­ri­ous work of Christ­mas shop­ping.”
