Dec­o­rate the work­place

Matamata Chronicle - - Out&about -

Mata­mata busi­nesses are en­cour­aged to go all out this Christ­mas. Along­side the Bay­leys Christ­mas lights tour, Bay­leys Mata­mata, Mata­mata Mitre 10 and the Mata­mata Chron­i­cle are invit­ing lo­cal busi­nesses to dec­o­rate their shop win­dow or cre­ate a Christ­mas dis­play.

And while busi­nesses can choose to take part in a Christ­mas pro­mo­tion with the Chron­i­cle, it’s really about bring­ing the spirit of Christ­mas to Mata­mata, Chron­i­cle ed­i­tor Teresa Hat­tan said.

Busi­nesses may choose to go down the tra­di­tional route with a Christ­mas tree and tin­sel while oth­ers may get cre­ative. You could per­haps theme your dis­play to what your busi­ness does. En­tries for the Bay­leys Christ­mas lights tour open on De­cem­ber 2. Res­i­dents are en­cour­aged to get their houses ready to take part in the tour now, Bay­leys Mata­mata’s Mar­garet Troughton said. En­tries can be col­lected and dropped off at the Bay­leys of­fice on Arawa St.

A range of lights are avail­able from Mata­mata Mitre 10, in­clud­ing a wide se­lec­tion of so­lar lights which are prov­ing pop­u­lar this year, Mitre 10’s Lynette Stan­ley said. The Chron­i­cle’s pro­mo­tion will run on De­cem­ber 9 and will call on the pub­lic to match Christ­mas dis­plays with busi­nesses tak­ing part.

Both the pub­lic and the busi­nesses could have a chance to win.
