Sea what I’ve made!

Have your say

LITTLE Sophie Whodes looks like she is becoming quite an expert in sea-life.

Sophie, aged six, was among many youngsters trying their hand at drawing underwater creatures like crabs and fish during a week of children’s activities at the Frenchgate Shopping Centre.

It was one of a number of activities themed around World Environment Day.

Lynn Sutherland, of The Big Al Entertainment Company, was brought in to keep the youngsters busy. Events were themed on sea animals, and things seen in the sky.

Centre manager Amanda Phillips said: “The workshops are designed to be fun for the children but they have an underlying theme.

“We want to raise awareness of the environment to children but in a way that means they can engage with the topic and have fun as well.”
