Youngsters hit new heights at Horsefair Shopping Centre fun day

THE Horsefair Shopping Centre in Wisbech held its annual Summer Activity Fun Day on Monday August 23.

The free event hosted a wide range of fun activities to keep children and their families entertained between 10am and 2pm.

The UK’s tallest supervised mobile climbing wall, standing at nine metres tall, was a particular favourite for those brave enough to tackle it.

“We had some great entertainment planned for this year’s event,” said Horsefair manager, Kevin Smith.

“It’s fantastic that we are able to host free events for the local community.”

A face painter was on hand to paint fun and wacky designs on faces and a balloon modeller created all sorts of different creatures for youngsters.

The police also gave visitors and shoppers an opportunity to speak to them while members from Bedfordshire, Cambridgeshire, Peterborough and Northamptonshire Wildlife Trusts held stalls at the centre to offer information about what they do.
