Geographers’ study of shopping!
The Year 9 Geographers braved the cold weather to investigate the impact of the Middlebrook retail park on Bolton CBD. The girls evaluated the advantages of out-of-town versus town centre retailing from the shoppers’ perspective by interviewing members of the public, gathering opinions on the redevelopment of Bolton’s Victorian Market Hall.
As petrol prices soar, will we abandon car-based shopping and return to our town centres using more sustainable forms of transport? This is just one of the topical issues the girls will be debating in Geography.
