Christmas competitions, a prize draw and festive events ...
 
Christmas windows competition - the votes are flooding in
In just one week we have had over 2,300 votes via Facebook for our Christmas Windows Competition.
 
The windows are so good that all 40 of the businesses taking part were featured in the Chronicle & Echo - on page one (right) and across four pages in the paper. A voting form was included in the paper, for readers who prefer to post a vote rather than go online.
 
The Chronicle & Echo also included an online story last week inviting people to vote for their favourite window - see this coverage HERE.
 
Make sure you encourage your customers to support your business by voting for your festive window.
 
The easiest way to do that is to visit our Facebook album and LIKE your favourite picture (people can vote for more than one window by LIKING more than one picture).
 
The deadline to vote is 9am on Monday, 17th December. The business with the most votes (posted votes via the Chronicle & Echo and LIKES on Facebook) will be crowned the overall winner. There will also be area winners:
 
1. Abington St
2. Bridge St, Gold St & Gold St Mews
3. Sheep St, The Drapery & The Parade
4. Grosvenor Centre & Market Walk
5. The Cultural Quarter (Derngate, George Row, Guildhall, The Ridings & St Giles St)
Shop local this Christmas
 
We have been visiting businesses across the town centre, taking photos and raising the profile of our boutiques, gift stores, cafes, restaurants, venues, professional services and shops.
 
Here is Cafe Marseille. You can see the full album HERE - and if we haven't taken your photo yet please get in touch and we'll pop over.
Prize Draw winners
 
Thank you everyone for promoting and supporting our Northampton Christmas Prize Draw.

Urban art gallery to transform Emporium Way
 
Emporium Way will be getting a face lift this winter thanks to the skills of local artists.
 
Work on an urban art gallery in the walkway through to the Market Square began on Wednesday, 5 December and will feature graffiti styled art work from NorFAMtoN, an art project set up to turn the footpath into a dedicated space for live art, street food festivals and outdoor exhibitions.
 
A grant has been awarded from Northampton Borough Council’s Heritage and Culture fund to aid the transformation. Read more HERE .
