With the aim of bringing dads and their children together for fun activities, retailers at Backridge in Twitter Lane, Waddington, are hosting a special event this Saturday and Sunday.

And every dad visiting the retail destination will receive a complimentary packet of sunflowers to take home and plant with their children.

One of the retailers, Siobhan Howell, of Wish Gifts, said: "Many dads just don't spend as much time as they'd like with their children so we decided it would be a great idea to give them some free seeds which they can take home and plant together, and hopefully, if we get a summer this year, will result in some magnificent sunflowers."

As well as receiving the complimentary seeds, dads and their children will be able to paint mugs together at Paint Pot, while at Wish Gifts the children can write on helium balloons why they love their dads so much, and make sunflower cards which they can then give to dad.
