OPEN soft play sessions for toddlers are taking place in a Greenock east end sports centre as part of a scheme to combat the cost of living crisis.

As part of the council's ongoing Warm Hand of Friendship initiative, the free programme runs every Friday from 10am until noon at Lady Octavia Sports Centre.

Inverclyde Leisure is inviting parents to bring their little ones to play on the inflatables, with tea and coffee included for mums and dads.
