Show your love for Mansfield

DO you want to show your love for Mansfield? Then go along to the ‘I Love Mansfield’ launch event in Mansfield Market Place on Saturday.

The event starts at 10am with the ‘I Love Mansfield’ team giving away 50 limited edition T-shirts, plus thousands of wristbands, balloons and badges. And you can even have your face-painted with hearts.

The event, organised by the Mansfield BID on behalf of businesses, aims to get local people showing their ‘Love’ for the town centre. It will be hosted by the Mansfield 103.2 Roadshow.

Visitors will be invited to say in their own words why they ‘love’ Mansfield by writing a message on special heart shaped notes, which will be displayed on a six foot heart.

Every half hour one of the messages will be selected to be read out live on air on 103.2 and win a special prize, donated by businesses in the town centre (see

A selection of the messages will appear in next week’s Chad.

People proudly displaying their ‘I Love Mansfield’ badges and wristbands will also be able to benefit from a host of special offers available whenever they visit the town centre.

All you have to do is show your badge or wristband to any business who displays an ‘I Love Mansfield’ poster in their window.

All the offers available can be found at the ‘I Love Mansfield’ page at

The ‘I Love Mansfield’ team will also be out spotting the badges and wristbands over the next few weeks - and handing out prizes to people wearing them.

Badges are available at all participating businesses and at the Customer Service Desk outside Debenhams in the Four Seasons Shopping Centre.
