Memories wanted for shopping centre birthday

Happy birthday: The Waterside needs local help marking its 20th birthday on the city’s High Street.

The Waterside Shopping Centre will be turning 20 next month and would like residents’ memories of the mall.

While the management team at the High Street shopping centre have a few ideas to mark the occasion, they would also love people’s photos, magazine and newspaper cuttings for an exhibition.

Past staff at the Waterside are also being invited back for a reunion celebration.

Chantelle Henderson, marketing manager said: “Saturday, March 17, will be the mall’s 20th birthday and we’re busy putting together a day of celebrations and special events.

“We would like to hear from people who have pictures of the centre and also want people who used to work here to come back for afternoon tea and a chance to catch up with former colleagues.

“We will also be running a prize draw for people who are also celebrating their 20th birthday on Saturday, March 17.”

Anyone with memories for the exhibition that do not mind them being on display can contact Henderson on 01522 529566 or email her.
