Schoolchildren will have no excuse to be bored this summer thanks to the Howgate Shopping Centre and its in-house dinosaur.

When he’s not relaxing on the sandy beach outside Bank of Scotland, centre mascot Howie will be hosting a ton of activities for children, running from this Saturday right through to the start of the new term on 
August 18.

Things get underway with the song and dance factory and special guests will be turning up throughout the day, including Elsa from ‘Frozen’, Spiderman 
and Batman.

Howgate marketing manager Margaret Foy said: “The summer holidays are a special time for our Kids Club members and their parents. We know it can be a challenge for parents to maintain the entertainment for their children over six weeks, but we can help with our free beach and programme 
of activities.”
