The Security Team at Wythenshawe Town Centre, which is owned and managed by St. Modwen, has been presented with an award by industry professionals for its continued efforts in making the town centre a safe and pleasant place to shop.

The security team, which includes Sam Rhodes, Paul Ferguson, Ramesh Rarjan, Imran Hussan, John Rhodes, Musa Sonko, Nisar Ahmed, all from Manchester, has been recognised for their continued contribution to the Retailers Against Crime scheme, which ensures any theft, anti-social behaviour and other misdemeanours are reported. In turn, Wythenshawe Town Centre has been reported to have a very low crime rate due to the security presence, knowledge and professionalism.

Members from Wythenshawe Town Centre Security were presented with the award at the RAC Conference in Belfast City Hall on September 23.

Maxine Fraser, National Operations Director at Retailers Against Crime, said: “Retailers Against Crime is a national retail crime partnership, established to detect and deter crime. The awards recognise the efforts of RAC members in reducing crime and improving community safety and we are pleased to reward the team at Wythenshawe Town Centre for their continued support working alongside both the police and RAC. ”

Steven Knowles, North West Regional Director at St. Modwen, said: “This award is testament to the great work of our security team and demonstrates our commitment to making Wythenshawe Town Centre a safe and enjoyable place to shop and relax. We look forward to continuing to improve the town centre for the community.”

The Wythenshawe town centre development has long provided a variety of choice and quality retail for the local residents. Since entering a joint venture arrangement with Manchester City Council in 1997, St. Modwen has been working on a development plan to bring about the town centre’s regeneration. Wythenshawe Town Centre now comprises almost 468,000 sq ft of retail floor space, anchored by Asda, Argos, Boots, Home Bargains, Iceland and Wilkinson.
