A £1000 PRIZE is up for grabs in a new competition aimed at promoting the range of independent shops and businesses in Buxton.

The Buxton Christmas Shopping Crawl has been organised by the Buxton Town Team to encourage people to visit the town’s range of retailers.

Crawl maps will be available from the Buxton Sparkles Christmas switch-on event in the Pavilion Gardens, Buxton, on November 23, from any of the participating businesses, or online at www.visitbuxton.co.uk.

To be in with a chance of winning the £1000 first prize, or the second and third prizes of £200 and £100 respectively, take your crawl map round each of the thirty participating business and get it marked - as well as stamping maps, some retailers will also provide a little reward to those who visit their business.

Completed maps should be handed in to any of the businesses taking part.

There is no purchase necessary and the winner will be chosen via a prize draw, which will take place early in the new year. The prizes are made up of a mixture of cash and vouchers.

Co-organiser Jean Ball said: “We have some really wonderful independent businesses here in Buxton, offering great value and choice, that are all too easy to neglect. The Christmas Crawl is a fun way for people to discover the abundance available, and to support the hard working entrepreneurs who are part of our local community.”

The Buxton Christmas Shopping Crawl includes cafes as well as traditional shops.

Buxton Town Team would like to thank everyone involved in the event.
