Shoppers can join in the fun in Hemel town centre this weekend as the Riverside Shopping Centre marks its 10th anniversary.

The fun is starting at 11am tomorrow (September 12) and goes on until 4pm, with the same on Sunday (September 13).

Free family entertainment such as Punch & Judy shows, birthday cupcake decorating workshops, face painting, balloon modelling and more will be available to shoppers.

One lucky person could also be taking home £10,000 cash, as those that spend £10 or more in each store at Riverside has the chance to crack the code to the safe with the cash prize inside.
