Lincoln BIG has congratulated a Lincoln retail centre, which is celebrating winning a prestigious “green” accolade.
St Marks Shopping Centre was presented with the Business Category prize in this year’s Lincolnshire Environmental Awards at a ceremony at The Bentley Hotel in South Hykeham.
Centre Manager Valerie Johnson said: “We were absolutely thrilled to win this award. As a shopping destination at the heart of Lincoln, we are working incredibly hard to ensure we are doing everything we can to help make the city a cleaner place to live.
“We have introduced several environmentally-friendly initiatives with the help and support of our retailers and we are already seeing great results. Recycling as much waste as we can, as well as keeping our streets tidier, are paramount to us. It's thanks to the support of our local community of shoppers which is helping us to make such a positive impact.
“We are determined to make a difference and by implementing changes together, we can," she said.
