THIS December will see Visit Eastbourne launching their latest 12 Days of Christmas campaign, partnering with local businesses to spread festive cheer.

Eastbourne Borough Council Lead Cabinet Member for Tourism and Enterprise, Councillor Margaret Bannister said “This year it has been more important than ever to come together as a community to support our local and independent businesses.

Over the summer we were pleased to partner with local businesses through our Love Eastbourne campaign, reaching over 520,000 people across the country while promoting all of the fabulous things that Eastbourne has to offer and we are thrilled to be continuing to do so once again in the run up to Christmas, in what is a crucial time for all businesses.

Our 12 Days of Christmas campaign aims to highlight some of the wonderful independent and local businesses in Eastbourne, inspiring people to shop locally, providing Christmas gift ideas and offering the chance to tick something off their list with daily giveaways!”

The 12 Days of Christmas campaign will launch on 1 December via the Visit Eastbourne social media channels and will feature gift ideas and giveaways courtesy of a wide range of businesses including Drusillas Park, W. Bruford, the Enterprise Centre and Fizz on Foot.

A directory of local shops and eateries across the Eastbourne and Lewes District offering online shopping, deliveries, click and collect services, takeaways and more, can be found at [shopslocal.info]shopslocal.info and [eatlocal.info]eatlocal.info.
