Voting for your favourite festive window could win you a prize
Our Bury St Edmunds’ Christmas Window Competition is back again this year, with shoppers, customers and visitors choosing their favourite festive display to decide who’ll hold the right to keep the fabulous winner’s award for the next 12 months. Everyone who votes using the LoyalFree app will also be eligible for a prize draw to win one of three Our Bury St Edmunds Gift Cards that can be spent in 73 different town centre businesses.
The annual competition which has been hotly contested in the town for many years is run by the Business Improvement District (BID) organisation Our Bury St Edmunds. All the businesses taking part are listed as a special trail on the app making it super-easy to find them. The app is free to download and voting in the competition is also free. You can vote up until Thursday December 7 with the winner being announced soon afterwards.
Mike Kirkham from Our Bury St Edmunds BID said: “Last year’s winner Hayward Moon is keen to hold onto the winner’s shield this year but there are several with an impressive track record in the competition such as Baileys 2, Denny Brothers and former winners Javelin and Loft & Spires. We hope users of the app will wander around the trail to have a look at as many as possible before casting their vote. Our businesses put so much hard work into their shop windows at this time of year and it really makes the town centre look wonderfully Christmassy.”
A number of businesses including Bimbi and Ada Baby are taking part in the competition for the first time. Among others participating are: Lotties Waffles, 1921, Guildhall Studio, Lipstick & Locks, Marimba and Trotter & Deane. A full list of participants and further information on how to vote is available by downloading the LoyalFree app or by visiting www.ourburystedmunds.com.
