Buy Local

Christmas Magic Displays Competition

Many Horsham District businesses and shops are owned and run by local people, our neighbours and our friends. Let's support them by choosing to Buy Local, spend our money locally, support our high streets and support local people at a time when they most need it.

This Christmas you can support local businesses through our Buy Local Gift Happy campaign and celebrating the festive windows, market stalls and internal displays which help to make our towns and villages a magical place.

Christmas Magic Displays Competition

Public voting has now closed and the winning displays have been announced. See the winning displays.

Independent businesses in Horsham District with festive window, internal or market stall display visible to visiting customers, were invited to participate in the competition.

The public were encouraged to vote for their favourite festive displays in our Christmas Magic Displays Competition throughout November and early December, to determine The Public's Choice, for the chance to win fantastic prizes.

The winning business voted the ‘Public’s Choice’ has now been announced and will benefit from publicity in December, as well as a £100 voucher for Point of Sale material and a framed certificate. Winners have also been selected based on professional judging.

How else can I support local businesses this Christmas?

Buy Local!

Every time you buy from a local business, that's a pound that stays in the local economy. That's local jobs for local people, local companies that keep trading, and work for local tradespeople.
