Spinning plates, ribbons and hula hoops filled a shopping centre in Nailsea as children learnt some new skills.

Youngsters tested their balance on stilts and tight wires before trying their hand at poi and gymnastic ribbon twirling.

Those who were unsure about having a go, were able to spectate from the sides with their families.

Children enjoyed three fun-packed sessions when they visited Crown Glass Place during half-term.

The activities were put on by Lewis’ Fun Circus Skills as part of the shopping centre’s Wacky Wednesday programme.

Crown Glass Shopping Centre runs free children’s entertainment throughout the year during school holidays.

Children have also been invited to write a poem for their mum for Mother’s Day.

The poems will be uploaded to the centre’s Facebok page and the entry which attracts the most likes by March 8 will win two gift vouchers.
