Children had fun making organic fruit smoothies and learning about the environment at the first workshop of Swindon's Greenbridge Retail and Leisure Park’s annual summer school, held at Chiquito restaurant.
The free ‘Eco Warriors Summer School’ is being hosted by the shopping park to keep kids entertained during the school holidays and give parents a well deserved break.
This year the Greenbridge Summer School has an ‘environmental’ theme and features a series of workshops that highlight the importance of looking after the planet.
The classes, which started on 8 August, are divided into two age groups, five to eight year-olds and nine to 11 year-olds, and run every Wednesday throughout August.
Kay Rigg, centre manager at Greenbridge, said: “The Summer School gives kids the chance to learn a bit about the environment and have lots of fun, while also giving parents a well deserved break.
“Retailers have sponsored the classes by giving up their time to supervise and by providing the materials needed for each workshop and great fun was had by all involved.”
The next workshops include an art recycling challenge at Currys, making herb gardens at Focus DIY store and a sports challenge at Cannons Health Club.
