BROMLEY kids are to be given lessons in hygiene by two life-size, cartoon-like characters.

Children can meet fun characters Dirty Beastie and Soap Sud Sally at the Clean Crusaders Interactive Show, The Glades shopping centre, on September 15.

An educational video will teach children the importance of basic personal hygiene to help prevent the spread of infections such as threadworms and stomach upsets.

Dirty Beastie and Soap Sud Sally will interact with the children, distributing stickers, colouring sheets, educational leaflets, flyers and posters.

Advice for parents will be available from a school nurse.
