Attraction receives mum award

ONE of North Kesteven’s visitor attractions has recently been presented with an award for its family friendly facilities by Netmums, an online parenting organisation, for the second year running.

The National Centre for Craft and Design in Sleaford was voted in a poll by members, mainly mums as their favourite free place to visit in the South Lincolnshire area.

Netmums was founded in 2000 and is the UK’s fastest-growing online parenting organisation with over one million members and four million visitors a month. Netmums is a family of local sites that cover the UK, each site offering local information to parents.

The attraction is operated by Leisure Connection and North Kesteven District Council.

* There are a number of holiday activities going on for young people and children.

Today (Wednesday) you can get creative with a workshop called How to Catch A Star by Oliver Jeffers, from 1-3pm at £5 per person.

On Monday August 20 you can design and make your own unique cushion with the Quilters Guild between 1-4pm at £5 per person; and on Wednesday August 22 you can design and make a robot in a day of free drop-in craft workshops.

Also, every Friday during the summer holidays from 1-4pm people can learn to create digital art using an iPad and develop skills in new media with artist Jason Wilsher Mills. It is free but booking advisable.
