A trip to the shops had a different meaning for a group of children who spent an afternoon with a shopping centre’s artist in residence.

They spent their time getting creative with Hale Man at the Whitgift Centre in Croydon town centre, doing painting, sculpting and crafting on August 19.

Man held workshops throughout the summer to inspire youngsters to be more creative.
