Wythenshawe’s Urban Buzz!
We’re making a few small changes to the Town Centre to create a brighter, greener space for wildlife to flourish!
To promote biodiversity across the Town Centre, from today we are creating bug hotels, bat boxes and planting 1,000 bulbs to create a sea of flowers across Wythenshawe Town Centre.
These changes will not only look wonderful, but will also decrease the Town Centres overall carbon footprint by reducing the amount of mowing conducted whilst the bulbs are in bloom!
The project is being run by brilliant volunteers from our Centre team and our landscaping partners at Countrywide Grounds Maintenance who are kindly getting involved for free!
We will be posting photos of our bug hotels soon and will need YOU to vote for which one you think is best, so keep your eyes peeled!
We have loved seeing you all these past few months, but we must now ask you once again to only visit for essential purposes.
From Thursday 5 November, Wythenshawe Town Centre will be supporting the local community by providing access to essential services such as pharmacies, banks, supermarkets and opticians. Food outlets are also permitted to offer takeaways and some of our stores will be offering click and collect services.
We would like to say a huge thank you to all our colleagues and tenants who have given their all since re-opening and of course all our valued customers who have done their part to follow safety measures.
We will be ready to welcome you back safely in December just in time for the most magical time of the year!

Our key priority is the safety of our customers and the staff at outlets still trading during the November lockdown. All COVID-secure measures remain in place.
The safety measures include hand sanitising stations, enhanced cleaning regimes, the requirement to wear a face covering unless exempt, maintaining social distance on the mall and in all shops at the Centre, and not visiting if experiencing any coronavirus symptoms.
We’d like to thank all our customers for playing their part in shopping safely with us during the months since the first national lockdown.
During this new lockdown, we again ask for their cooperation by carefully following all the rules and advice to ensure their safety and protect the health of their fellow shoppers and the staff who are working here.
