“When you live in a city it’s easy to get stuck in a routine. We would like to encourage locals and residents to try something new – as the saying goes, a change is as good as a holiday,” said Chantelle Cole, V&A Waterfront’s Executive Manager of Strategic Marketing. “Forget about spring cleaning the house – get some spring in your step instead.”
