BARONS Quay and Winsford Cross are under new management.

Robi Gaine has been announced as the new manager of the two centres.

His appointment comes at a crucial time, with Winsford town centre currently undergoing a major transformation while Barons Quay continues to see more and more units fill up.

On what he will bring to the role, Mr Gaine said: “I possess a deep passion for community, charitable work, and fostering strong working relationships.

“These values are at the core of my management style, and I’m dedicated to instilling a sense of community engagement and collaboration at both Barons Quay and Winsford Cross.”

Mr Gaine has more than 28 years of experience in the travel and hospitality industry.

He started out as a cruise ship cleaner, progressing to become the manager of retail operations on international cruisers.

He later began working in the UK, first for Ethos Farm, a customer experience consultancy, before taking on the role of facility manager for the Wembley designer outlet in London.

It is hoped this experience will come in handy as the two centres enter a new era.

Barons Quay has just welcomed the addition of two new venues, the adventure play area Wild Tots and the gaming bar Dockyard.

They will soon be joined by international gym group, Snap Fitness, which is set to open in January 2024.

Meanwhile, over in Winsford, the town’s regeneration project continues.

Queens Parade has been demolished with work to tear down Fountain Court now underway.

Both of these buildings were deemed “not fit for purpose” and will be replaced by new units which will be handed over to Costa Coffee and B&M.

A new 168-space car park will also be built as part of the project alongside the creation of a new public square which will eventually host to the town’s two war memorials.
