BARONS Quay is celebrating the summer with the return of Beach on the Quay.

The beach is back from Saturday, August 3 to Sunday, September 1, located opposite H&M.

Barons Quay will also be hosting free summer activities for families to enjoy each Saturday throughout the holidays.

These include bucket and spade decorating from 11am to 4pm on August 3 and beach ball decorating from 11am to 4pm on August 10.

There will also be a first-come first-served ice cream giveaway while stocks last from 11am on August 17, and giant roaming seagulls making appearances throughout the day on August 24.

The beach was a family hit last summer, with deckchairs and sandcastles offering a slice of the seaside on the banks of the River Weaver.
