The traders have collaborated to line up a host of offers to attract shoppers to the south side of the town centre, including discounts, a raffle and even a live owl demonstration.
The initiative has been put together by the West Park Hotel, with 12 other participating businesses on West Park, offering everything from inspiration for Christmas menus to party fashion and outdoor equipment to ward off the effects of excess.
West Park Hotel Manager Nathan George said:
There are some really great businesses on West Park but we were all conscious that some shoppers head straight for the town centre and may miss out what we have to offer so we got together to work out how best to showcase the area.
Offers on the night range from discounts of up to 25 per cent, vouchers in return for spending a set amount, product offers, tastings and demonstrations. Weetons is offering mulled wine and Christmas canapes to shoppers, while the West Park itself is offering a 20 per cent discount on food and a free glass of fizz when
The owl comes courtesy of Weetons, where one of the chefs breeds owls and is bringing a Siberian eagle owl along for the evening. Although it won’t be flying due to the location, the owl will be available for photos!
We have been delighted by the way the businesses on West Park have worked together on this and hope that we can help everyone get into the Christmas spirit and show what the south side of town has to offer.
