The business has spent £1.5m in making changes to the centre that include a new roof and modernised furniture fittings. The project, which has taken eight months to complete, is now fully open in time for Christmas.

Frosts managing director James Frost said: "We’re delighted with the finish of the centre and the feedback has been overwhelming.

"This is our 70th anniversary year of running the family’s business and we constantly look to add more value to our centres to create the best possible customer experience. We’re thankful to our customers for putting up with the disruption of the building works but I’m sure they will be happy with the results."

The first completed stage of the works saw the creation of the region’s largest outdoor furniture space (currently used for Christmas displays and products) and, now customers can now experience the new Terrace Restaurant, separate from the Garden Room restaurant.
