We understand that days like Father’s Day can be difficult for many, and this year even more so. Our sympathies are with anyone who has lost a loved one at any time.

So, come Sunday 21st June 2020 we would like to encourage a bit of a celebration of all Dads, whether they are here or have sadly passed on.

Take a trip down memory lane

With a little bit more lockdown time on our hands, perhaps a trip down memory lane would be a nice idea? How about digging out some old family photos to reminisce over zoom, or to show your kids some of their distant relations?  And if you spot a classic why not turn it into a Father’s Day gift, mounted in a frame or as a printed keepsake?

For photo gift ideas why not head to WHSmith to re-create that special family album.

Fragrant Father’s Day

Why not treat Dad to his favourite aftershave? Pop into Boots and you’ll come up smelling of roses!

Make sure he puts his feet up this Father’s Day

Most importantly, if Sunday is usually set aside for Dad chores, head on down to Poundland for all the biscuit treats you can get your hands on and then make sure Dad puts his feet up with the Sunday papers and a cuppa and his favourite “dunking” biscuit, that’s Dad’s day off all sorted – job done!

Make your own card

We’ve put together 6 designs for you to choose from, print at home and colour in for Dad. Download here.

Whatever your Dad or Grandad is deserving of this Father’s Day, George Yard Shopping Centre wishes you a great day of celebration, and with more shops beginning to re-open we hope to see you back here soon.  In the meantime, please stay safe, keep healthy and stay in touch!
