Shoppers invited to celebrate Mother’s Day

By Connor Steel

FAREHAM SHOPPING CENTRE have invited their visitors to celebrate Mother’s Day in style throughout this month with a selection of free activities running across this upcoming three weekends; building up to a fourth Sunday of Lent and helping local residents of all ages to show their appreciations for beloved mother figures.

Running from today (March 4) there will be a giant greetings card installation in Osborn Square, which will be located opposite B&M and Debenhams. Shoppers can use this feature to write any personalised message or place a visual tribute to their mothering figure, including step-mothers and guardians, by March 19 (Sunday).

Shoppers are further invited to attend a craft session running between the hours of 11am and 3pm on March 18th (Saturday), where visitors can physically create a personalised picture frame gift as preparations for the special day. Similarly to other craft workshops this will be run by shopping centre staff within Osborn Square.

Staff are lastly offering an opportunity to win a £100 gift card in a competition, which can be spent across the range of stores within the shopping centre. To stand a chance of winning this prize visitors must complete an entry form that can be found around the centre and post these in the entry boxes located near the large card.

Fareham Shopping Centre Manager Mike Taylor added his own thoughts on these activities: “We are beyond excited to show all the love for Mums across Fareham with our Mother’s Day celebration. Our larger than life greetings card will certainly stand out in the Mall and is a great way to show how much you love your mums!”
