In support of Fareham In Bloom’s 2018 theme, Fareham Shopping Centre will be transformed into a jungle with children getting the chance to be kitted out in safari gear and hunt for exotic plans hidden in stores.

Starting at Osborn Square, the Mini Jungle explorers will be escorted throughout the shopping centre at allotted times with a form to tick off each plant found through out the 65 stores in the centre.

Wild animal characters will meet and greet shoppers throughout the day, with children also being able to take part in craft activities including personalising a funky, green creature to take home.
