Light up your Christ­mas win­dows

Mansfield Courier - - OPINIONS / PEOPLE -

CHRIST­MAS is fast ap­proach­ing - just four weeks away un­til Santa makes his big visit - and it is also time for busi­ness own­ers to get mov­ing on their win­dow dis­plays.

De­cem­ber 1 marks the ar­rival of Mans­field’s big Christ­mas tree with the of­fi­cial light up be­ing a part of the Christ­mas Car­ols Ser­vice to be held on Fri­day, De­cem­ber 2 in the High Street me­dian strip.

De­cem­ber 2 will also mark the ‘big re­veal’ for all shop win­dows to be un­veiled with no par­tic­u­lar theme this year - but make it your best.

Over the past three years the Mans­field District Busi­ness As­so­ci­a­tion has run a com­pe­ti­tion for the ‘best dressed win­dow’ for mem­bers with pub­lic vot­ing on what you the shop­pers think.

How­ever, this year judg­ing may be through se­cret shop­pers - so get go­ing, get those Christ­mas dec­o­ra­tions out or make new ones and let’s light up the town and shop win­dows for this fes­tive sea­son.

UP AND UP: Stu­dents got to en­joy a va­ri­ety of ac­tiv­i­ties dur­ing the Jamieson and Mer­ri­jig school camp, in­clud­ing rock climb­ing, games, fly­ing fox and a slip ‘n slide.

AL­READY LIT: The shop win­dow at Loy­ola Gifts is al­ready light­ing the way to this fes­tive sea­son.
