Following government advice some of our stores at Market Place have reopened.

We continue to monitor the situation and Government’s public health guidance closely, and we will keep all of our visitors updated via our website and social media channels.

From Friday 24th July and in line with the latest Government Face Covering Guidance, we are asking our customers to wear a face covering, both when visiting the shopping centre and also when shopping in our stores.

The wellbeing of our staff and customers continues to be our top priority, and we are committed to making your shopping experience as safe as possible. Please protect yourself and others by wearing a face covering when visiting the centre.
