Holly Jolly High Street festive finale

14 December 2018

The Holly Jolly High Street retail trail takes place for the final time tomorrow, Saturday 15 December, having offered shoppers the chance to win a wonderful hamper full of festive gifts donated by retailers for two weeks.

The trail, on Melton Road in West Bridgford, can be completed by collecting an entry form from any participating Holly Jolly High Street trail retailer.

A map directs shoppers to a variety of stores around Melton Road, seeking ‘lost presents’ which each have a letter written on their tag.

Once participants have all 14 letters, they need to unscramble them to make a Christmas word for a chance to enter into the prize for the hamper.

Shoppers still hoping to win the sought-after hamper, containing prizes donated by over 20 local traders, must submit their map to Isobel and Henry before 5pm tomorrow.

The hamper includes a variety of gifts ranging from a Christmas Bouquet, voucher for a half hour massage and festive produce, to swimming passes, gift vouchers and even pantomime tickets for a family of four.

Cllr Andy Edyvean, Rushcliffe Borough Council’s Cabinet Portfolio Holder for Economic Growth and Business said: “The Holly Jolly High Street marks a wonderful opportunity for shoppers both old and new to visit Melton Road and explore all that the shopping district has to offer this festive season.”

Those taking part in the trail are welcome to make a voluntary donation to the Mayor of Rushcliffe’s chosen charity, Nottingham Hospice, when they collect their entry form.

Launched on 1 December, the trail was welcomed by a range of seasonal events, including an appearance by Santa and his sleigh, a musical performance by Rushcliffe School Choir and Melton Road’s Christmas Lights Switch On.

The retailers participating in the trail are:

  • The Dental Suite
  • Brumpton Butchers
  • Slades Florist
  • The Nottingham Window Company
  • Belvoir
  • Daisy Daisy
  • Hopology
  • W.Lymn
  • Taste
  • Living HQ
  • Pastability
  • Elizabeth McKenna Flowers
  • The Tall Frog Deli
  • Isobel and Henry

The winner of the festive hamper will be selected at random early next week.
