Earlier this week we were invited down to New Square West Bromwich to check out what’s on offer for children and families this Summer. Between now and 20th August (11am until 5pm) as well as the usual array of shops and restaurants open, there’s lots of fun to be had at the centre including a free beach complete with buckets and spades, deckchairs to kick back and relax in, lots of fairground rides for the whole family and games to enjoy.
We enjoyed a good few hours at New Square earlier in the week. Olly loves soft play so enjoyed spending an hour at Funky Monkeys Soft Play. There was so much for him to enjoy including sliding down the slides, making friends and playing football and enjoying climbing up and down the frames. Funky Monkeys is one of our favourite soft play centres as it’s clean and well looked after. It does get very busy so if you’re anything like me you’ll want to pop in to let the children run off some steam before it gets too busy.
After an hour in soft play we headed in to The Entertainer to pick up a present for our friends little boys birthday. What child heaven that store is! Olly was very lucky and was gifted a couple of toys to take home. Lego is pretty much a winner thank you The Entertainer!
We were also invited into Sprinkles Gelato to enjoy a create your own workshop and my word, what a treat! We were very kindly given a pancake and a waffle to decorate ourselves with a huge selection of toppings. The menu at Sprinkles is incredible if you’re looking for a place to meet friends or treat the children this Summer. It’s also got the biggest selection of gelato I have ever seen and it all looked absolutely delicious. I tried a tiny spoonful of Snickers gelato which was incredible and Shilts enjoyed the Strawberries and Cream.
Summer fun at New Square West Bromwich
If you’re local to the area, head on down to New Square this Summer with the children and let them have some fun. Olly loved playing at the beach and attempting to build sandcastles. Olly didn’t fancy enjoying the fair ground rides at the centre but as you can see from these photographs lots of other children have enjoyed them over the last couple of weeks.
During the event, there’s lots of chances to win some brilliant prizes and discounts from the shops and restaurants at the centre as well as the chance to try out some New Square rock! All the profits raised from the fairground rides will be donated to the children’s wards at Sandwell Hospital which is New Square’s Charity of the Year 2017. So let the kids enjoy some fun in the knowledge you’re helping out a local charity too!
