Young shoppers can learn all about the benefits of recycling with arts and craft fun and free face painting at the Ropewalk Shopping Centre during the May Half Term.
With the help of the centre’s new mascot, Reggie the Recycling Crocodile, children can get creative with a range of workshops being held in the Nuneaton shopping centre.
Running in partnership with Nuneaton and Bedworth Council from Tuesday 30th May to Thursday 1st June, children will be able to enjoy free arts and craft workshops where they can make and decorate fun objects out of materials that are usually mistaken as being recycled.
During the workshops, children will find new uses for egg boxes, coffee cups and seed trays. Plus, there will be free face painting each day and the chance to meet Reggie the Recycling Crocodile, who will be snapping up all the recycling in Ropewalk!
“Here at Ropewalk we’re keen to be green,” says Centre Manager Tony Wilkes. “We already use LED lights and have an environmentally friendly water filtration system, so to be able to team up with Nuneaton and Bedworth Council to teach our young shoppers about the benefits of recycling is wonderful. We hope everyone enjoys our art and craft workshops and have fun meeting Reggie the Recycling Crocodile!”
The workshops will run from 11am to 4pm and Reggie the Recycling Crocodile will make appearances at intervals each day.
