Bad weather forces cancellation of St Austell fun day
A family fun day planned to take place at White River Place shopping centre in St Austell tomorrow, Saturday August 17, has been postponed due to forecast bad weather.
The Mascot Day, which would have seen the centre’s own White River Rabbit mascot taking on the mascots of local retailers and charities in a series of games and challenges, will be rescheduled for later in the summer.
Claire Daniel, manager of the shopping centre, said: "It’s a great shame that we’ve had to postpone the Mascot Day as everyone was really looking forward to it.
"But there is heavy rain forecast for Saturday which would make it impossible for all the games we had lined up to go ahead.

"It wouldn’t be as much fun for families if they have to stand outside in the wet to watch.
"The event will be happening at a future date – and we’ll be expecting all the mascots to be on top form as they’ll have had even longer to practice!”
The results of a competition to name the White River Rabbit mascot, which has been running on Facebook and Twitter, will still be revealed on Saturday and the winner notified so they can collect their prize.
Details of when the rescheduled Mascot Day will take place will be announced soon on the White River Place website, www.whiteriverplace.co.uk through the @whiteriverplace Twitter feed and on the White River Place Facebook page.
