Stay Safe with the Bridges child safety scheme
While you’re with us, enjoy a safe and relaxed family shopping experience by signing up to our ‘Little Shoppers Stay Safe’ Scheme. Characterised by our mascot – Bernie Bear – the Little Shopper Stay scheme aims to help families enjoy a relaxed, safe and carefree day out by minimising the trauma and distress of children and parents who may become separated whilst in the centre.
The idea behind the scheme is very simple:
Children are issued with a wrist band from the Customer Services desk on which their parent or guardian write their contact details.
If the child becomes separated from their parent they will be told to find a shop window which has the Bernie Bear mascot displayed
Parents can then phone the Bridges using the information on the Little Shopper information card that they will have received along with the wristband.
Security guards will be sent to look around the shops for the child and reunite them with their parents, with minimum distress.
