We were at intu Merry Hill on Saturday because H had his first ever driving lesson. He’s only 11, but that’s not a problem because he got to drive on a big car park in a dual control car with a proper instructor. It was a big hit and we are already arranging his next lesson.
After H had finished learning some driving skills, we headed off to the shops. H had plans to go to Smiggle and GAME for a mooch round and he was very pleased to pick up a legendary Pokemon code for one of his DS games in GAME. As we were finishing up we heard the tones of a 7 piece brass band playing in the shopping centre and went to see what was going on.
What a sight! An enormous, very orange, woolly mammoth! This is Marmalade who is intu Merry Hill’s new mascot. You can see him stomping around intu Merry Hill this week and in fact he’ll be doing that till Sunday 3rd June at these times.
As you’d expect from intu Merry Hill there are some great Marmalade themed half term activities planned for this week. So if you’d like to get involved making cookies with Marmalade, you can find out when here.
