WITH 12 weeks to Christ­mas, city stores bring out the plum pud­dings, baubles and trees to sell.

While early sell­ing tac­tics may ir­ri­tate, it’s a sig­nal to plan end-of-year par­ties.

In Fe­bru­ary, the coun­cil asked each town to or­gan­ise its own Christ­mas lights cel­e­bra­tion – putting more load on com­mu­nity or­gan­i­sa­tions.

Sep­a­rately, we’ve been urged in tourism fo­rums to think and pro­mote as a re­gion.

How can we lift our­selves above any fa­tigue – from con­stantly giv­ing, each in our town – to em­brac­ing vis­i­tors?

Sug­ges­tions in­clude recog­nise our sig­na­ture prod­ucts, cre­ate sig­na­ture events, thank our sup­port­ers – and be­come a par­tic­i­pant.

Will you help to switch on Christ­mas this year?
