When you visit The Friary Guildford, you will be able to obtain free wristbands for your children from the Concierge desk located on level 1.
A contact telephone number should be written on the wristband and in the event of your child being lost, you will be contacted quickly and reunited.
If you lose a child whilst shopping:
Contact our Concierge team or a member of centre Security.
Teach your child to do the following, if they get lost:
Stop, stand still and look, don’t run about if they see the person they were with, go to them and hold their hand. If lost in a shop, go to the nearest till point and talk to the shop staff (most shop assistants will wear uniforms or name badges). If in the shopping centre, tell them to look for a parent with children and ask them to ring the number. Do not go up to anyone else and do not leave the shopping centre with a stranger!
Best ways to keep your child safe:
- Encourage children to stay close to you
- Use reins or wrist links
- Write your contact number on a child safe wristband
- Carry an up to date photograph of your child
- Take note of what your child is wearing
