Hambleton retailers have ‘show stopping’ window displays this Christmas thanks to a series of workshops hosted by the District Council.
Supported by the Federation of Small Businesses the sessions were offered to local businesses to help them prepare festive windows and displays that attract shoppers.
Helen Goodwin of ‘Made you Look!’ not only provided tips to achieve the wow factor, but gave ‘hands on’ help to retailers trying to put their own displays together.
Father Christmas paid a visit to Northallerton’s Civic Centre this week to collect the food and gift parcels donated by staff, councillors and residents for the Hambleton Foodshare project
Hambleton District Council Leader, Councillor Mark Robson, handed over the gifts which will be issued to people from the district who are in temporary financial need.
Thirsk and Northallerton are hosting markets throughout the Christmas season.
But the regular Hambleton District Council run markets may have slight changes to opening hours over the festive period.
Thirsk operates as normal with markets on Saturdays and Mondays whilst Northallerton’s Wednesday markets are brought forward a day to Tuesday December 24 and Tuesday December 31.
Markets resume as normal on Saturday January 4.
