Welcome to Artie!
Our Giant Polar Bear has arrived at the Meridian Shopping Centre and we ran a competition to name him. The winning name was ARTIE entered by Elaine Redknapp.
Our Bear has been brought to Meridian Shopping Centre with the support of Havant Borough Council and funds from the Welcome Back Fund, a government initiative providing councils across England financial support from the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) to encourage the safe return to high streets and help build back a more inviting atmosphere for shopping in store.
Perfect for seasonal selfies and festive family memories, we hope he will become a firm favourite with our shoppers.
