Youngsters enjoyed an action-packed half-term programme of free events at Corby’s new Tesco store.

There was a flipping good pancake workshop, a St Valentine’s Day craft workshop and a visit from the popular Moshi Monsters.

Poppet and Katsuma, characters from the much-loved virtual pet monster games, caused a stir among young shoppers as they posed for photographs with the special visitors.

Store manager George King said: “We understand that shopping is essential for families but we can offer a little bit extra to keep the little ones entertained too.”
