A LUCKY lion has been on the rampage around Northfield, spreading good fortune and surprising shoppers as part of the town’s Culture Mash.

Provided by Redditch Chinese Association, the lion brought good luck to local businesses as part of a Chinese celebration held at the Northfield Shopping Centre on July 11.

Youngsters were invited to make lanterns, take part in a Chinese calligraphy class and play various cultural games before joining organisers on the lion dance parade across town.

The event was the grand finale of a wider project which aimed to encompass the entire town and bring its inhabitants together for the Northfield Culture Mash.

“It was a great way to finish the celebrations,” said Pete Barber, Northfield Shopping Centre manager.

“It has brought a great burst of noise and colour to the Northfield community, and hopefully some good luck too.”
