A massive thank you to all customers who donated to our With Kids giving tree we made our final delivery on Friday 18th December 2015 with hundreds of gifts to the charity!! We have also raised a massive £1,700 so thank you to all customers who donated money within the Centre.

Our first drop off to With Kids was on 10th December 2015 as we physically couldn't store anymore gifts in the office. Huge thanks to all the customers who have donated a gift to a child who may go without this festive period. Here is our staff with all the gifts so far and Jade from Centre Management dropping off the gifts at With Kids.

ECO Green

At the Forge Shopping Centre we are committed to providing environmentally and socially responsible management practices to help ensure future sustainability for all.

What we're doing to help

BIODIVERSITY
The Centre employs a contractor to ensure that the landscape areas are well maintained, the centre's car parks are well served with a variety of trees and shrubs including a mixture of deciduous and coniferous species providing colour all year round and habitat for local biodiversity.

ENVIRONMENTAL
Implementation of a waste management system which involves the onsite separation of:

  • Cardboard
  • Polythene
  • Metal
  • Magazines
  • Food
  • Mixed Recycle

The Centre is 100% waste efficient. Energy from residual waste is used to provide power to local housing.

ENERGY MANAGEMENT
We have achieved an overall reduction of the carbon footprint at the centre of 28.55%.  This saving was achieved by the implementation of an environmental champion from the security staff, installing timers, sensors and a review of working practices from the cleaning contractor.
