Following Monday’s announcement from the Prime Minister for all non-essential stores to close, and for people to stay at home, the decision has been taken to close the Meridian Shopping Centre with effect from midday Wednesday 25 March until further notice.


Special arrangements have been made for The Beacon Food Bank. Anyone needing to use or donate should visit


Two stores will continue to trade as requested by their head offices. Wilko will still trade from their external doors to North Street opposite Waitrose and Bargain Buys will use their rear door opposite Havant bus station. If you need to shop, please continue to maintain social distancing, staying at least two metres from others using the stores and limit the number of visits.


Bulbeck Road car park will remain open and free until further notice to assist staff working in these essential stores.


Our thanks for your support in these difficult and unprecedented times, we will ensure to regularly update our webpage, Facebook and other social media channels. In the meantime, please stay safe and we look forward to seeing you shopping again soon.
