A SHOPPING centre has had an action packed birthday.
Thousands flocked to Byron Place in Seaham to mark the centre’s sixth anniversary.
As well as a host of free activities, there was also a balloon modeller and stilt walker roaming the Centre with free giveaways.
Children also got the chance to have their faces painted, watched on by Daffy the Dolphin, Byron Place’s Kids Club Mascot.
Also, back by popular demand, Bjorn the Polar Bear was the main attraction of the party celebrations. Bjorn is a fully-animated life-size adult polar bear, who was joined by his Eskimo keeper to meet and greet all the young shoppers at intervals throughout the day.
