Represent- Mo Dennis – Wellgate Shopping Centre

Wellgate is a 450,000 sqft shopping centre in central Dundee. Seven weeks after starting her first Centre Manager role Morag was faced with the Covid-19 pandemic. Wellgate remained fully open for essential retailers through both lockdowns, with Morag at the helm throughout.

Reflect- Brighter Days – The Lexicon – Bracknell


There Will Be Brighter Days. In January 2021, England, was placed into lockdown once more.  With only essential retail open, footfall was low and communication Covid centric.

Wanting to positively engage with the local community during this tough period, The Lexicon launched the ‘There Will be Brighter Days’ campaign on February 1 2021. Children, adults, schools, care homes, community groups and budding artists were asked via social media to help The Lexicon grow a Brighter Days tree by downloading a handprint template that they could complete at home.

Over the eight-week campaign period, hundreds of handprints came flooding in filled with smiley faces, flowers, rainbows, bright, pretty colours. Every week, handprints were added to the Brighter Days tree, to create a physical colourful piece of community art, in the town centre.
