Eurovision Frenzy Hits St Johns!

All week, St Johns Shopping Centre, Liverpool has been a hive of activity with the buzz of Eurovision hitting the city and our colleagues have been getting into the Eurovision spirit, donning their blue and yellow ties in support of the Ukraine.

We sent our Marketing Team to site to see what was happening and they were lucky enough to witness a photoshoot with our colleagues, showcasing the amazing work they are doing at the centre to support people from all over the world.

Our teams are using a translation app so they are able to communicate with all their visitors and they have Eurovision Travel Guides to hand so they can point people in the right direction.

To symbolise the Centre’s support of Eurovision and Ukraine, the amazing flower walls around the site have been lit up in blue and yellow and are looking fabulous!

A massive thank you to all our St Johns colleagues for fully supporting site this week. Well done St Johns and well done Liverpool for hosting such an amazing event. 

Colleague Commended By Merseyside Police

We’re extremely proud of our colleague, Paul for receiving a commendation from Merseyside Police in recognition of his outstanding service in assisting the Police over the last few months with regards to his remarkable use of CCTV.

Paul Lavery works as a Security Officer at St Johns Shopping Centre, the largest of Liverpool’s covered shopping centres, located in the heart of the City.  With the support of Paul, the Police have been able to prevent crimes and made a number of arrests of wanted individuals.

Paul is being recognised for a number of incidents where he has provided CCTV footage to the police.  One incident, during Christmas 2022, a gang of youths committed over £1million worth of damage throughout the city centre. Paul was vigilant and noticed one of the individuals walking through the shopping centre and provided footage to the police, leading to an arrest.

Dave Crawford from Merseyside Police wrote to Paul to “thank him for his help, work and keen eye on the matter”.

Paul has also been nominated for a number of Westgrove Reward & Recognition Awards and National Industry Awards for his impressive use of CCTV.  

Congratulations to Paul on his commendation, keep up the fantastic work!
