Deck Out Your Deer!

We are delighted to announce the return of our Reindeer on the mall from Friday 22nd November 2019.

This year our reindeer masterpieces have been created by children from the following schools:

St Malachys Primary School

Crawfordsburn Primary School

St Comgalls Primary School

Donaghadee Primary School

Kilcooley Primary School

Clandeboye Primary School

Ballyholme Primary School

Killard House School

Last year’s winners, Kilmaine Primary School, have chosen CLIC Sargent as the charity for this year. The extremely generous donations from our customers last year meant we were able to donate over £5,000 to Helping Hand RBHSC!

The winning school, whose Reindeer raises the most money for the charity, will receive a £1,000 donation from Bloomfield and every penny raised will be donated to the charity. *

To vote for your favourite Reindeer, donate to the charity via the tube on the Reindeer’s back.

The Reindeer will be on the mall until Christmas Eve, don’t forget to donate while you are doing your Christmas shopping!

*prize fund is funded from Bloomfield

Quiet Hour Every Thursday – Autism Awareness

From Thursday 14th November the hour from 6-7 every Thursday will be Quiet Hour. #autismawareness

As part of our commitment to making Bloomfield a pleasant and easy experience for all customers, we are introducing a quiet hour from 6pm – 7pm every Thursday from 14th November 2019 onwards. During this time, we will turn off the music on the mall and within may of our stores. We have also asked the stores who have the capability to mute their tills during this quiet hour.  

We are working closely with all stores to try and make Bloomfield accessible for all. This is an ongoing process and we appreciate any feedback on how we can continue to improve and make the centre a pleasant experience for all.
