Has the Christmas panic kicked in yet? Need some time to get some last minute bits sorted? Then check out Corby Borough Council’s Drop ‘n’ Shop service at Corby East Midlands International Pool.


Drop ‘n’ Shop is run by the Crèche at Corby East Midlands International Pool. It means you can drop your youngster off to our qualified staff in the Crèche, giving you the chance to shop in peace whilst your little one has a fun afternoon playing and learning.


The Drop ‘n’ Shop service is for those aged between 3 months and 5 years old and is available until Wednesday 20th December (Monday - Friday 9.30am - 11.25am and Monday, Wednesday and Fridays from 12.30pm – 2.25pm).


Prices are just £3.10 for 1 hour or £5.20 for the full 1 hour, 55 minutes.


Corby Borough Council’s Lead Member for Community, Cllr John McGhee, said:

“Just as much as it can be stressful for us to negotiate busy shops with our youngsters, it can also be very stressful for them too. So why not let them enjoy an hour or two playing and learning with our excellent crèche staff whilst you shop in peace. With Willow Place Shopping Centre just across the road from the facility it means you can make the most of your time and pick up some great bits from our local shops.’


Booking is advisable and places can be reserved up to 1 week in advance. Payment is required at the time of booking.
