Horsham District Christmas Hot Chocolate Competition 2020

08 Dec 2020

Horsham District Council’s search is on for the champion festive hot chocolate maker from Horsham District’s great range of independent cafes and restaurants.

So add to your Christmas gift hunting experience when you are out and about doing your Christmas shopping and indulge yourself in a hot drink or two to help us hunt out the most scrumptious Hot Chocolate in all of Horsham District.

All shoppers are asked to do is upload their hot chocolate photos tagged #championhotchoc to the Horsham Time Well Spent Facebook page or on Instagram before Wednesday 16 December. Don’t forget to tell us where you bought it and the flavour of your hot chocolate drink.

We'll upload all the photos on Friday 18 December and you can then tell us which is your favourite - one person commenting will win a fabulous hot chocolate hamper from local Chocolatiers, Cocoa Loco from Horsham’s Carfax and there will also be an opportunity to make chocolates with a member of the Cocoa Loco team in their own home!

You'll have until 24 December to comment online and we'll announce the winner in early January.

So take your time to enjoy the full Christmas experience as you ‘Buy Local’ on our high streets safely, enjoying a hot chocolate on the way.

Horsham District Council Cabinet Member for the Local Economy Cllr Paul Clarke commented:

“Now with Christmas just around the corner I urge all residents to get out and about locally for their festive shopping and look to their local independent businesses for at least a proportion their purchases, making their money work harder for the local economy.

Our hot chocolate competition is just one of a range of festive promotions under our ‘Buy Local ‘ banner and I would urge as many of you as possible to sample a festive inspired hot chocolate and enter.

“Look out for our forthcoming campaigns encouraging you to ‘Buy Local’ just that bit more than usual this year to help our town centres and communities thrive.”

The 2020 Horsham District Champion Hot Chocolate competition is another initiative from the Council’s ‘Buy Local’ suite of campaigns to encourage people to support  local traders both on and off the high street.
