Vote for Coalville’s best dressed window and find our hidden Santas to be in with the chance of winning local shopping vouchers.

North West Leicestershire District Council (NWLDC) is offering shoppers two opportunities to win local shopping vouchers, and all people need to do is vote for their favourite window display and go on the hunt for Santa.

Best Dressed Window

Tinsel has been hung and windows have been dressed, it’s time for the public to judge which window is best. Voting for the best dressed window competition is now open.

Businesses across Coalville have been putting their decorating to the test with this year’s Christmas display competition, so now it’s time for shoppers to have their say on which should be crowned winner.

The coveted title of Best Dressed Window will be awarded to the shop with the most votes with nearly 20 businesses pitting it out to be crowned winner in the town centre.

Have you seen Santa?

Shoppers and visitors admiring shop windows should also keep an eye out for Santas in shops in Coalville.

To encourage people to explore the town centre, over 40 mini Santas have been placed around the town in this year’s Have you seen Santa? competition.

Find ten Santas and enter online for a chance to win local shopping vouchers.

Vote in this year’s Best Dressed Window competition and enter Have You Seen Santa before Sunday 18 December. Winners will be contacted after 19 December.

Councillor Tony Gillard, Portfolio Holder for Business at NWLDC, said: “It’s that time of year again when shops in the town centre wow us with their impressive festive window displays.

“It can be a difficult time for businesses, and we want to support them in encouraging footfall to the local high street.

“If you’re out and about in Coalville this festive period, don’t forget to vote for your favourite and keep an eye for the Santas spreading some cheer in the town.”
