Ty Mawr

As we enter the second week of the school holidays there’s still plenty of activities that are free for you and the kids to do.

Number one this week is of course Playday in the town centre

It takes place between 12.00 and 4.00 on Wednesday – it really is for kids of all ages and is completely free. Favourites will return this year including the giant sand pit, mass water fight, junk play and rope springs. All that’s required is a playful mood and some clothes you don’t mind getting wet and messy. A picnic is also a good idea so you can stay all afternoon.


Number two is take up the reading challenge

The Summer Reading challenge is on so why not sniff out some Animal Agents with the Dogs Trust at Llay Library between 3.00 and 4.00 on Friday 4 August. The event is suitable for 7 – 11 year olds who can listen to “The Mysterious Case of the missing honey” by Claire Fredman and Holly Swain.  Will Inspector Clueless and his dog “Sniff it out” solve the mystery? There’s a senses game to see if you young ones have the skills to “sniff out” a clue and a rescue dog will be visiting to show off her skills with solving puzzle boxes. If you wish to go to this event you will need to book a place by calling 01978 855100.

Number three is free swimming

Taking place in the council’s leisure pools at Waterworld, Gwyn Evans and Chirk there’s free swimming at various times and you can find out more here

Number four is a visit to one of our country parks

Always a good choice for all ages. Country parks have everything to offer from sculptures to wildlife and of healthy walks. There’s eleven to choose from and 6 of them have the coveted Green Flag award so why not pack up a picnic and enjoy some time at one of them.

There’s a minimum age restriction on some instruments. All you need to do is register for the free leassons at www.PrestoMusicSchool.co.uk and the admin team will book you in.
