If you go down to the town centre . . .

IF you go down to Motherwell town centre on Friday you’re in for a big surprise.

The Streets Alive activity programme continues this week with a Teddy Bears Picnic in Garrion Square, just outside the Brandon Works pub.

Take along your favourite teddy bear and join in with some interactive story telling from 11am-3pm. It’s a great way to keep the kids amused while out shopping for back to school essentials.

And of course if the weather stays dry you could always take along a picnic or pick up some lunch from one of the local shops.

A full list of the Streets Alive activities is available on the Town Centre Activities Facebook page or you can find out more information by following on Twitter @TCA_Local.
