The first Sunday in March is a special day set aside to celebrate children. If you live in Christchurch, why not bring a picnic lunch to enjoy performing arts, crafts, demonstrations, sports, activities and games with the whole family. We’d love to see you at our Family Works stand. Just remember your sunscreen!
