St Enoch Centre launches ‘No Phone Zone’

Glasgow’s St Enoch Centre has introduced a ‘No Phone Zone’ where people can switch off and relax.

Situated within the shopping centre’s Atrium Food Court, the space will remain open for an initial trial period. The initiative is being supported by Scottish Mental Health charity, See Me.

Anne Ledgerwood, general manager of St. Enoch Centre, said: “It is now a common sight to see groups of people sitting together, all looking at their screens rather than engaging with each other and we want to encourage people to switch off their phone and instead to enjoy time together over a bite to eat with a real conversation.

“Equally, it is well documented that people benefit from ‘me time’ whether relaxing over a coffee or reading and so we wanted to provide a space where ‘switching off’ is actively encouraged and ‘real’ experiences can be enjoyed.”
