Say hello to Autumn!

It’s getting colder outside and the days are getting shorter which means one thing – autumn is well and truly in full force! As the temperatures drop, head to The Meadows to treat yourself to a brand new autumn wardrobe. Half term is also coming so keep the kids happy by giving them a little treat too…

First things first, make sure you warm yourself upon arriving in the centre! Grab a coffee from Muffin Break or BBs, plus a sweet treat for the kids – the perfect prep for a day out shopping! If you are heading to the centre around lunch or dinner time, make sure to head to one of our kid-friendly restaurants Giraffe and Wildwood.

With delicious menus serving everything in season for autumn, you’ll be full and warmed up in no time. There’s also an extensive kids menu for both restaurants, meaning that even picky eaters can find something they’ll love. If you’re thinking of picking up a sweet treat for when you’re browsing the shops, make sure you visit Millie’s Cookies and Muffin Break. Muffin Break even stock savoury muffins for when you fancy something a little less sweet.

While you’re in the centre, don’t forget to pick up your everyday essentials, or Halloween essentials. from Wilko. Boots and Superdrug are also stocking some fantastic offers on everyday toiletries too – the perfect opportunity to stock up for the winter.

We’re also seeing (dare we say it!) Christmas gift sets popping up in stores – a great opportunity to get organised for the festive season ahead. If you fancy treating yourself, head to the makeup section for some brand new seasonal looks – the berry lip is back and we are fully embracing it!

We’ve seen some brand new jackets and coasts popping up in Warehouse and Roman – these will definitely be needed as it heads to winter months! With a variety of fits and styles, there is bound to be something that you’ll love for the colder months ahead. If you’re thinking of buying something a little different, head to one of our independent retailers Citrus and Parmar Shoes for that unique piece you know that no one else will have.

If the kids were well behaved during your trip around the centre, head to The Works to give them a little treat. If the kids have saved any pocket money, help them pick something that’ll keep them entertained during the long half-term week ahead. The Works stock a variety of craft kits, as well as a fantastic range of children’s books. Fantastic!
