Families wanted for walk

FAMILIES are needed to take part in a sponsored walk.

Friends of Peterlee Sure Start Children’s Centres are inviting families with under fives to take part in a sponsored toddle.

The theme is “your favourite character” and there will be two sponsored toddle walks, taking place at Seascape and Howltech Children’s Centres in the town.

“We welcome families to dress up in fancy dress and enjoy the fun.”
