Cast your vote in big Easter art contest: Column by County Mall manager Mark Haynes


With spring on our doorstep, we’re looking forward to welcoming the new products and trends into the centre this month. It’s been a busy start to the year for the shops at County Mall so far with both Valentine’s Day and Mother’s Day already behind us. We’re delighted to have recently welcomed The Body Shop into the mall, who bring with them a unique and complimenting offer to our existing range of beauty and cosmetic retailers.

This Easter we’re working with four local schools within the community who are busy decorating giant eggs, ready to submit into our Big Easter Art Competition.

The finished decorated eggs by Pound Hill Junior School, Hilltop Primary School, Desmond Anderson Primary School and Southgate Primary School will be on display in the centre over the Easter Holidays and will be located outside Primark on the lower mall. The winning school will get a complimentary class trip to Go Ape Junior Treetop Experience!

We’re inviting you to come into the mall and show your support for each school by voting for your favourite egg. There will be instructions located next to the eggs on how to vote, plus anyone who votes will receive some amazing offers and giveaways to use throughout the Easter holidays, including exclusive discounts from some of your favourite County Mall shops, plus an exclusive offer from Go Ape at Tilgate Park, Crawley.
