THE crowds are truly flocking to Manor West as Christmas shopping begins in earnest now that there are just seven (yes, SEVEN!) weeks to Christmas.
The atmosphere was added to on Saturday by a “Family Funday” where there were huge crowds enjoying a host of activites for little ones.
The highlight was “The Animal Roadshow” which was like a mini zoo in the centre with a range of different types of animals including snakes, a lizard, tortoises, rabbits, guinea pigs, an owl and lots of creepy crawlies such as slimey snails, tickley spiders, scorpions and other insects.
There was an animal arts and crafts area where kids were able to draw, make and colour their favourite animals and bring their works of art home with them.
Kingdom Party Pals, face painters, a balloon modeller and Tony Wonder the magician all added the the fun enjoyed by hundreds of families throughout the day. Scroll down for photos…
