Latest addition to Marshalls Yard needs a name

30 August 2018

The team at Marshalls Yard have welcomed a beautiful grass bear to their fountain area- but they need help with giving it a name.

The giant grass bear will be based at the Gainsborough shopping centre from Thursday 30th August and will sit amongst shoppers at the fountain area- the perfect place to snap a selfie!

To welcome the new addition, the Marshall’s Yard team are running a competition to give it a name. To enter, pick up a slip from the FatFace store, write down your name suggestion and fill out your details and post it in Big Bear’s post box. The lucky name selected will win a goodie hamper from Sweet Tradition.

Centre Manager, Alison Shipperbottom said ‘We love to bring new attractions to the centre; Big Bear will be a focal point at the fountain for children and shoppers to enjoy’.

The competition will run until Friday 7th September when the winner will be announced on the Marshall’s Yard Facebook page. 

More information on all the events can be found on the Facebook @MarshallsYard page or on .
