A VILLAGE shopping centre has turned to social networking in a bid to boost trade.

Struggling shop owners at Denby Dale’s Springfield Mills now have their very own Facebook page.

The new site was the idea of Emma Mowbray, who runs a shop in the Norman Road based mills.

She said: “With the current recession Springfield Mills is sadly suffering along with everybody else.

“So I have taken it upon myself to create them a Facebook page and try and get the locals to spread the word about how fab it is.

“Please have a look at the page and get as many people to like the page as possible.”
