 Loraine Jones, General Manager at The Mall Blackburn, said: “After a rather miserable start to Spring the flowers and trees are finally bursting into life.

 “This has inspired the ‘in the garden’ theme for our half term holidays and we can’t wait to see children getting hands on and having a great time with our free activities.

 “The fun starts on Monday 29th May and everyone is sure to have a blooming marvellous time!”

 Activities are taking place every day from 11am until 4pm in the unit between Poundbakery and Muffin Break. The event is free of charge and further information can be found at:
