Stratford Shopping Centre announced as a Silver winner in the Zero Waste Scheme

Stratford Shopping Centre was announced as a Silver winner in the Zero Waste Scheme, celebrating the fantastic work that organisations are doing to drive down waste from landfill.

Entries are welcomed all year round for this ongoing awards scheme, with the next round of entries open until August 2016.

Speaking of the achievement, Stratford Shopping Centre, Deputy Centre Manager, Tony Whitehorn said: “We are thrilled to have been acknowledged by the Zero Waste Awards for the initiatives that we have applied to create a more sustainable environment by making the most of our resources and reducing waste. The whole team at Stratford Shopping Centre work extremely hard all year round and fully deserve this award for their efforts.”

“The Zero Waste Awards recognises leadership and action amongst those who are working hard to create a more sustainable and resourceful economy, embedding ambitious waste reduction practices into the heart of their organisations.”

Dan Magness – World Record Breaker

On Saturday 18th June, top Football Freestyler and TV presenter Dan Magness came to Stratford Shopping Centre to showcase his phenomenal football tricks and attempted to break a Guinness World Record.  We are proud to announce that at 11:47am Dan began his attempt to do just that and after a nerve racking 17 minutes Dan did just that – completing 1,138 consecutive football touches using just his shoulders. The crowd when wild as Dan announced that a New Guinness World Record had been achieved.*

The attempt was part of Stratford’s Dad’s Den event where men who hate shopping could relax in the man-haven decked out in an astro turf garden complete with iPad tables, game consoles and  giant football pool.

*Subject to Guinness World Record approval.
