East Auckland’s Ormiston Town Centre is celebrating its first anniversary.

The centre is marking the milestone with a week of family entertainment from March 21-27 including balloon twisting, fun activities, prize giveaways and store offers.

Its marketing manager, Joanne Ling, says the celebrations are a chance to acknowledge all that’s been achieved at the centre over the past year and showcase the unique and passionate community it’s become.

“This is an opportunity to celebrate the success of the retailers and tenants who have been with us from the start, as well as the exciting additions we’ve had in recent months.

“With plenty of prizes to be won, activities to participate in and offers to take advantage of, Ormiston Town Centre is your place to be this weekend.”

Ling says to thank customers for their continuous support for local businesses, those who spend $25 or more from March 21-27 will go into the draw to win a $1000 Ormiston Town Centre gift card.

“With birthday activities beginning on Monday, members of the public are encouraged to visit The Eatery and snap a picture at the unique birthday photo wall installation, before collecting take-home craft packs.

“Celebrations will culminate in a weekend of family-friendly activities, with balloon artists and entertainers, colouring and make-your-own wand crafting fun.”

Since opening its doors in March 2021, the town centre has expanded its offering and welcomed more than 20 new stores and community-centred businesses including childcare, a dental clinic, and veterinary practice.
