Spring Time at Saxon Square

Spring is finally here which means that it is time to dust off the winter cobwebs and start getting excited for more daylight hours and lovelier weather. March is the month when the flowers and leaves start to bloom and new baby animals are born. Take inspiration from nature and use this month to pull yourself out of winter hibernation and revive yourself, ready to enjoy all the seasonal things that happen over the next few months. With Easter on the horizon there's lots to look forward to and we've some exciting things happening here at Saxon Square to celebrate too!

It's nearly that time of year when you can sit down with a brew and a hot cross bun. Lightly toasted, packed with juicy sultanas and complete with a generous spread of butter that melts as it touches your lips - pure bliss. Get your hot cross bun fix here at Greggs, complete with a warm beverage of your choice. Traditionally eaten on Good Friday which this year happens to be 25th March, these are the perfect seasonal treats. Greggs also has a delicious selection of Easter themed cupcakes and biscuits for you to enjoy.

 

 

Great news! Now that we've entered March, the days are getting longer and warmer and in just a few weeks the clocks will go forward. This means one things - more time for the little ones to play outside and get that all important Vitamin D Fix. There's nothing better than arriving home after a a day of school to play all evening with their friends. Flaming Nora's have a brilliant selection of fun, outdoor toys including pogo sticks and bikes.

 

 

It's not only the children that need their Vitamin D though. Make the most of the longer day light hours and try and squeeze in an extra walk or two with your loved ones. Millets have got all the gear that you could need. It may be lighter but the temperatures are still quite low so a few layers is still necessary. Be prepared with a fleece and light mackintosh from Millets.

 

 

It's time to start prepping your Spring/Summer wardrobe. Florals and pretty patterns are back and it's time to add a few pastels into your palate. Head over to Topsies here at The Square for a stunning selection of Spring and Summer fashions. From beautiful dresses and cotton cardigans to sandals, jewellery and accessories, this is the perfect place to come for some gorgeous new garments.

 

 

Easter is also a great time of year for all those chocoholics out there. Don't forget to get an Easter Egg or two for your loved ones! The Cooperative Food have a great selection of eggs from all your favourite chocolate brands.

 

 

Finally, don't forget to enjoy Easter with us over the bank holiday weekend. Our free Easter Eggstravaganza on Saturday 26th March is set to be a fun day for all of the family. Between 11am and 4pm, children can take part in a fun craft workshop where they will create their own bunny ears and tails and become a Certified Easter Bunny. Once their adorable costume is complete, they can then hop off around the centre in search of Easter themed clues. These clues will lead them to some tasty, chocolaty treats! It will be the perfect Saturday family day out to kick start the Easter holidays and a great excuse to hit the shops whilst the children have some fun.

 

 
We are also running an Easter Egg Decorating Competition between the stores and retailers here at Saxon Square. Everyone is busy decorating a 28cm tall paper mache egg and they will be displayed in store windows once complete so come and have a look at the finished eggs. We will be running a competition on our Facebook page  (https://www.facebook.com/saxonsquareshoppingcentre). Photographs of the finished eggs will be uploaded and then it is your job to like/comment/share your favourite design. The most popular photo will be crowned the winner!
 

 

Have a lovely Easter Christchurch and we can't wait to see you for our Easter Eggstravaganza!
