Cake, disco and a new mascot marks the Exchange Ilford’s 21st birthday
No birthday is completed without a cake, disco and balloons and a shopping centre in Ilford was not to be left out.
The Exchange Ilford celebrated their 21st birthday with a retro rollerdisco and unveiled their new mascot – a six foot heart.
Old and young tried out their roller-skating skills on Sunday with instructors standing nearby in case anyone needed a helping hand.
Marc Myers, manager of the centre in High Road, Ilford, said: “The Exchange has become a firm focus for both shoppers and the community.”
The mascot was designed by pupil Monika Szulc of Cleveland Junior School, Cleveland Road, Ilford.
