The Marlowes in Hemel Hempstead will be providing an entertaining scavenger hunt for shoppers in-centre and Halloween crafts for them to do at home.

The shopping centre is offering shoppers a family-friendly scavenger hunt - following social distancing guidelines - that can be downloaded from their website and social media channels.

The scavenger hunt asks players to find Marley and the other Stay and Play characters in-centre, as located on the map, to spell out a missing word associated with Halloween.

Visitors are then asked to post the missing word to Facebook, tagging The Marlowes with the hashtag #WeFoundMarley for the chance to win a 'spooktacular' prize.

The Marlowes will also be providing downloadable colouring sheets from their website, which will include Halloween features, such as pumpkins, that families can put in their windows.

Humphrey Mwanza, The Marlowes’ general manager, said: “We’re excited to offer visitors activities this Halloween that are fun for all the family whilst in keeping with the new normal.

“Whether in-centre or at home, we hope that our shoppers enjoy their experience with The Marlowes this Halloween and we wish them all good luck in winning the prize!

“Despite the recent changes in restrictions, we have been able to maintain our centre in a safe and controlled manner for all of our visitors and staff.

“We are very grateful to our customers who have helped us stay open by following the government guidelines implemented in-centre, and we look forward to welcoming visitors who wish to participate in our exciting Halloween trail!”

The scavenger hunt will be available for shoppers during half term and starts on Saturday, October 24.

Visitors to The Marlowes over the age of 11 are asked to wear a face mask unless they have a valid exemption, follow the one-way system, visit in groups no larger than six people and abide by the traffic light system for stores promoting social distancing.
