A fo­rum for food, fun

Avon Valley Gazette - - NEWS -

FIRST RE­PORTED AT THE fenc­ing is down on sec­ond stage works link­ing two shop­ping cen­tres in For­rest­field with an out­door com­mu­nity place and meet­ing point.

New fa­cil­i­ties at For­rest­field Fo­rum & Mar­ket­place pro­vide al­fresco din­ing and a chil­dren’s na­ture play hub.

Prop­erty man­ager Hawai­ian chief ex­ec­u­tive Rus­sell Gibbs said the de­sign was about giv­ing cus­tomers a place to dine and play out­side the shop­ping cen­tres.

“We want to cre­ate shop­ping cen­tres that add to lo­cal res­i­dents’ life­style,” he said. Longer open­ing hours Mon­day to Fri­day: 7am- 9pm Satur­day: 7am- 6pm Sun­day and pub­lic hol­i­days: 8am- 6pm

The first new food ten­ant, Big T’z Amer­i­can Diner, opened on Fri­day last week with Dome to move in by mid2017.

Santa Claus will be at the cen­tre on Satur­day, De­cem­ber 17, from 10.30am to noon, with free chil­dren’s activities of sto­ry­telling, face paint­ing and craft mak­ing.

He will be avail­able for pho­to­graphs in his grotto from 11am to 2pm ev­ery day un­til Christ­mas Eve. And, in­stead of wait­ing in line, cus­tomers will be able to find their Santa Claus photo on the shop­ping cen­tre’s Face­book page.

Vis­i­tors also have the chance to win up to $ 500 worth of Christ­mas shop­ping and on Christ­mas Eve there will be carol singing from 10am to noon.

Hawai­ian, Food­bank and Angli­care WA have teamed up for the fourth year to help thou­sands of peo­ple strug­gling over the fes­tive sea­son.

Shop­pers can leave any do­nated food or gifts in the giv­ing boxes in front of Coles and Wool­worths un­til Jan­uary 10, or do­nate on­line at www. hawai­ian. com. au.
