Shoppers were asked to write down why their mother is a ‘10 out of 10 mum’ and 10 women were selected out of the hundreds of entries received as part of the celebration of the shopping centre’s 10th birthday this year.

The lucky competition winners were all treated to a beautiful bouquet of flowers and box of chocolates from Marks & Spencer.

Centre manager Joel Plumley said: “We absolutely loved looking through all of the fantastic entries and it was just great to be able to treat 10 mums to a very special gift this Mother’s Day.”

The winners

Rosalie Perry was nominated by her daughter Cheryl – “She is my hero, my wonder woman, running free-of-charge Granny taxi whilst battling with Parkinson’s disease.”

Christine Alexander was nominated by her daughter Nicola – “She’s not a 10 out of 10, she’s a good solid 12 out of 10!”
