The Stratford Centre, in Broadway, transformed their Central Square into a free attraction called Parklife for the school break providing a lovely grassy area for adults to sit back and relax in.

Meanwhile, children were kept entertained with giant games, face-painting, summer crafts and a treasure hunt led by Epico the Dragon and the centre’s mascot Makena.

The Stratford Centre is also offering shoppers the chance to win an Xbox 360 by visiting their website here.
