Customers will enjoy a day at the seaside in Walsall when whg holds its annual customer open day next week.

Under the Sea will be held outside whg’s Hatherton Street office on Thursday, 17th August from 11am to 3pm.

The free, family friendly event will see whg’s staff car park transformed into a beach, complete with a giant sandpit.

Fun games and prizes, food and refreshments and an entertainment square with a host of fun activities will be on offer. There will also be arts and crafts, local stalls, face painting and much more.

Children decked out in deep sea dress will be given free gifts for taking part. Youngsters are invited to dress as pirates, sailors, mermaids or anything related to the seaside.

The event will also give customers an insight into whg’s variety of services.

Connie Jennings, whg’s Social Inclusion Manager, said: “We know that some of our customers are unable to enjoy a beach holiday so we’ve decided to bring the beach to Walsall on what promises to be a fun, free day out.

“We are really looking forward to welcoming families to our popular open day event, where they can find out more about the services and support we offer at whg.”
