Faisal Rashid MP meets Ian Cox to discuss plans ‘in store’ for Golden Square  

Faisal Rashid, MP for Warrington South, recently met Ian Cox, Centre Director of Golden Square Shopping Centre.


Faisal invited Ian to meet at his constituency office to discuss the centre’s work within the local community and to talk about plans for new additions to the centre – including exciting plans for a new bowling alley.

During the meeting Ian also told Faisal about the centre’s recent success at the 2017 Green World Environment Awards for Shopping Centres, where he was presented with the bronze award in recognition of Golden Square’s efforts in improving recycling and promoting sustainability.

The internationally-recognised awards reward the endeavours of Commerce, Industry, Governments, Ministries, Departments, Agencies, Authorities and Individuals who have a beneficial impact on the environment.


Faisal said:

“It was great to meet with Ian to hear more about the plans for the future of the centre. The proposed new additions will mean new jobs for the town and more investment in our local economy, which is a great thing for Warrington South.


“I made it clear to Ian that I am keen to offer whatever support I can to help our local businesses thrive.


“During our meeting I also congratulated Ian and his team on being honoured with the bronze award at the 2017 Green World Environment Awards for Shopping Centres.


“The award given to Golden Square acknowledges the hard work and vision of Ian and his team in creating a more environmentally sustainable structure. It is great to see such an important and innovative approach to sustainability.


“I was delighted to see that under Ian’s leadership, Golden Square has been recognised internationally, which in turn is helping to remind people across the world that Warrington is a place that can produce forward thinking initiatives which help the environment.”


Ian Cox said he had enjoyed outlining the exciting plans for the future of the popular shopping destination.

“We have enjoyed enormous growth and success over recent years, capped by our recent Green World Environment Awards success.


“I explained to Mr Rashid that we are always in discussions with new retailers about opening stores at Golden Square, and following on from the news that Superbowl UK is joining us here at the centre we are looking forward to further announcements in the near future.”
