Saving the planet one plastic bottle at a time

Climate change and pollution are a very real part of our world today, and the importance of looking after our planet has never been greater. Plastic pollution is dangerously damaging the health of our oceans especially and the main contributor being everyday plastic accumulating; such as plastic bottles, tyres and packaging. Of the 35 million plastic bottles being used every day in the UK, nearly 16 million end up in landfill instead of being recycled.

This is why our beloved Boswell’s cafe has joined the ‘Refill’ campaign. ‘Refill’ aims to make refilling your water bottle for free the norm and we love it.

Add a pinch of Grape Tree

Autumn is the official season of comfort food. Raining outside? Let’s eat. Kids are bored? Bake a cake. Feeling chilly? Massive pot of stew. It’s all about what you can cook up with what’s in front of you. Grape Tree is the crowning companion to have when it comes to autumn cooking, with delicious ‘Feel Good Food’. I’ve done some of the work for you by finding some delicious recipes to turn those mere bags of nuts, jars of spices and pots of seeds into masterpieces the whole family can indulge in.

Flushed with excitement over toilet refurbishment

EM Toilet Shot.jpg

Work on creating brand new and modern toilet facilities at Emery Gate Shopping Centre starts today, with the grand unveiling planned in just five weeks time.

The project marks a significant investment from landlords Eagle One that will see the facilities upgraded to meet the demands of the 4 million visitors the shopping centre attracts each year.

Commenting on the project, Emery Gate Centre Manager, Nicola Milne, said "We can't wait for the refurbishment to be completed and hope the closure causes as little disruption as possible for our shoppers. We will be hiring portable toilets for the duration of the works, situated in the car park, outside the Tesco doors.  Alternative toilets can also be found at the Town Council building on the High Street, Bath Road car park and the Bus Station".

Meet the Easter Bunny at Emery Gate Shopping Centre!

We have teamed up with Chippenham Connected to bring families the chance to meet the Easter Bunny – right in the heart of Emery Gate.

That’s right folks – the Easter Bunny is taking some time out of his busy schedule to hop along to Chippenham on Saturday 15th April and join the Mad Hatter & Friends in the Town Centre. He will be meeting boys and girls between 11:30am and 3:30pm, presenting them with a delicious chocolate egg*. You’ll also have the chance to have your photo taken with the busy bunny too, so don’t forget to bring a camera or snap the moment on your smartphone!  

Nicola Milne, Emery Gate Shopping Manager, is as excited as we are about the prospect of meeting the Easter Bunny:

“Bringing the Easter Bunny to Emery Gate will be great fun and we can’t wait to see the children’s faces on the day. Easter is a time for celebration and we hope this kick-starts the holiday nicely for everyone to enjoy!”

This completely FREE event is brought to you by Chippenham Connected and Emery Gate Shopping Centre. There will also be the opportunity to create your very own Easter egg with a little chick, and enjoy other Easter crafts within the shopping centre. 

Simon Philpott, Chippenham Connected Manager, said:

“I am excited that we are putting Easter firmly back in the calendar by making it the focal point of one of our major events this year. Our goal is to create a festival atmosphere for our town that will last throughout the year as we deliver many more events like this.”

Not only is the Easter Bunny visiting Chippenham, we also have the Mad Hatter and his friends taking over the Market Place for a tea party with a twist, with Easter activities at Borough Parade, throughout Chippenham’s High Street, New Road and Hathaway Retail park – including some cute live bunnies at Jollyes Petfood Superstore.
