Time with our children is always to be cherished and what finer to do so than by doing something creative. On Saturday 3rd June ‘Making a Mark’ makes it’s way to The Harris Museum and Art Gallery.

There is also spinning and weaving in the makerspace at the Harris.

Ashton Park is normally known for it’s peaceful surroundings, ideal for dog walking or time out with the youngsters.
