The Scarborough News - - WELCOME | TO YOUR NEWS -

Dear Reader

Christ­mas shop­ping is in full swing, and, as we urged on our front page last week, we hope you’re shop­ping lo­cal – at least par­tially – and tak­ing ad­van­tage of the great of­fers in the Love Lo­cal cam­paign. There are some 50 or so busi­nesses signed up for it, and they are the sort that give the town and town cen­tre its unique­ness and lift it from the mun­dane. Sup­port them and they will sup­port you. The town’s food and gift fair is back on De­cem­ber 16 in West­bor­ough, which is an­other added shop­ping at­trac­tion. And it was good to see the suc­cess of the first Scar­bor­ough Sparkle event at the Open Air The­atre. In fact it was such a suc­cess that the coun­cil is al­ready look­ing for­ward to next year and ask­ing traders to come for­ward if they want to take part. And we’re look­ing for­ward too ... to next year’s Scar­bor­ough Busi­ness Awards af­ter the huge suc­cess of last week’s! If you think your busi­ness is a win­ner make sure you en­ter next year.
