Throughout both Saturday and Sunday, visitors to the shopping centre will be invited to take part in the#IPledge challenge to help reduce waste.

Kevin Legg, centre manager at Weston Favell shopping centre, said: “Throughout the weekend, all of our events are about creating awareness of what we do and inspiring others to do a little bit more.

“We are proud how hard we work to create an environmentally friendly, clean, green shopping space. That’s not to say we can’t do a little bit more, we will also be joining in with the pledges and we hope to see many of our shoppers doing so too.”
