All of us here at Middleton are committed to making your experience with us as welcoming as possible. Whether you’re here for shopping, treating or eating, it’s important to us that each and every one of you feels at home. With that in mind we have a few simple house rules that we hope will keep everyone happy.
- Please always keep an eye on any children in your care
- Intimidating behaviour of any kind towards other visitors, our staff or our retailers is not acceptable
- Please make sure any clothing with a hood attached is worn down.
- Animals are not allowed, unless they’re assistance dogs.
- No dropping litter
- No leafleting, canvassing, conducting third party interviews or surveys unless we give the thumbs up first.
- Selling goods without our go-ahead is not allowed anywhere in the mall, car parks or associated areas.
- Nor do we permit busking in the mall, car parks and associated areas unless agreed in advance by Centre Management.
- Climbing or sitting on any balustrade, barrier, fence or railings is also off limits, as we’d hate anything to get broken, especially you.
- No ball games, even if you are Lionel Messi.
- Cycling, roller-blades, micro-scooters, skateboards and Heeley’s are a no-no.
- No swearing, shouting or use of other unpleasant language. As your mum might say, “It’s not nice and it’s not clever”, and she’d be right.
- No inappropriate use of customer lifts or escalators.
- To make sure our guests are not always tripping over film crews, we do not allow commercial filming or photography unless it’s agreed by Centre Management first. Just pop by and have a chat to sort it out. If you’re taking shots of yourself, friends or family then snap away.
- No throwing any object within the Centre (unless it’s a smile).
- Please no running on the malls.
- Shirts/tops and footwear must be worn at all times, except in the changing rooms of course.
- Crash helmets should be removed upon entering the Centre, even if you’re having a really bad hair day.
- There is a strict no smoking policy, and alcohol is only to be consumed on licensed premises.
- Electronic cigarettes are also not permitted.
- Any act of vandalism towards property belonging to us or our retailers will be dealt with accordingly and the local police informed.
This list doesn’t cover everything and we have the right to deny anyone entry whose actions we feel are inappropriate.
Anyone who ignores the above rules or commits a crime will be denied entry for as long as Management see fit. All of which we hope you agree is fair.
But to the ninety-nine point nine per cent of you who are wonderful, lovely people and wouldn’t dream of being the slightest bit anti-social, thank you for taking the time and trouble to read this. Enjoy the rest of your visit.
