Guest blog by Linda Frampton, Mulberry Divers, the Local Activation Partner for the Selsey Christmas Shopping Crawl… I became aware of the Independent Christmas Campaign as a result of joining the Selsey Town Team which, like many others, had unsuccessfully applied to become a Portas Pilot Town.
28 Independent Retailers in Selsey will be celebrating an independent Christmas.
Despite not being selected for the Portas Pilot scheme the Selsey Town Team is working on ways to promote Selsey. A fantastic 28 retailers have now signed up to the “Celebrate an Independent Christmas” campaign. We have applied for funding to cover printing costs for the maps and thank you cards and will hear if we have been successful very soon! This means that the Selsey Independent Christmas will be in full swing from 19th November.
Selsey Christmas Lights Event on 1st December
Selsey has a Christmas Lights Event on 1st December and Selsey Business Partnership will be there promoting the campaign and providing maps to those who come into Selsey from outside the area. In addition the local radio station and a number of local publications are helping us with publicity.
We are hoping that this will be a successful event especially as it has united so many retailers in the area and as we have secured a major sponsor for the Selsey Independent Christmas for next year!
