Parents across Halton have been enjoying learning new craft skills with the help of tutors from Halton Borough Council. Why not join them in the new year?

Courses such as Babygro Keepsakes are held in the children’s centres across the borough, courtesy of the Adult Learning Team.

Participants say they have been a great way for parents to socialise and learn new skills, safe in the knowledge their little ones are being looked after at the onsite crèche.

Halton Borough Council’s Executive Board Member for Adult Learning, Cllr Eddie Jones, said: “Not only are local residents learning and also very responsibly doing their bit to help the environment by recycling their children’s old babygros and making something personal and unique for them to treasure.”
