Easter Extravaganza!

We are super excited to invite families to Monks Cross on Saturday 31st March between 11am and 4pm!

Children can come and create their own craft bunny ears and Easter basket before hopping off on an egg trail around the centre to collect chocolate goodies!

The retailers here at Monks Cross have been busy over the last few weeks creating their very own Easter eggs and it is these that you will be looking for on your trail! There will be a clue map though to keep you on track. Every time you find one of their decorated eggs there will be chocolate treats to pick up!

Minster FM and Minster Monster will be here on the day between 12pm and 1pm too so look out for them! They might even be running their very own competition on Facebook live so keep your eyes peeled on their Facebook page on the day!

In addition to all of this Easter fun, there will some crazy, interactive Science activities to get involved with between 11am and 1pm in the information centre!

We cannot wait to see you there!

Park Mark® Parking Award

We are delighted to have achieved the coveted Park Mark® Safer Parking Award again this year!

The Park Mark® Safer Parking Award is given to parking facilities that have achieved the requirements of a risk assessment conducted by the Police and the British Parking Association. The Safer Parking Scheme is an initiative of the Association of Chief Police Officers (ACPO), Police Scotland and the Police Service of Northern Ireland, aimed at reducing crime and the fear of crime in parking areas.

The Safer Parking Scheme, managed by the British Parking Association (BPA), awards the Park Mark® to facilities that have measures in place to create a safe environment. Police Accredited Assessors undertake a site specific risk assessment. They assess the management and maintenance of the facility and check that there are appropriate levels of surveillance, lighting, signage and cleanliness, thereby reducing the opportunity for crime.

Monks Cross has put in place measures that help to deter criminal activity and anti-social behaviour, thereby doing everything possible to reduce the fear of crime.
