THOUSANDS of pounds worth of prizes will be given away at Warrington Market this Christmas.

Market traders have collaborated with the council to give away 40 prizes.

Visitors to the market are invited to pick up an entry form from any of the stalls throughout the month up until Christmas Eve.

Winners will then be given an opportunity to open a door to a ‘giant advent calendar’, which is on display in the market, to reveal a mystery prize.

A representative from the Market Traders Association said: “Traders have kindly donated some fabulous prizes, ranging from food and drink in The Cookhouse, to a family-sized turkey, specialist food hampers, gifts and keepsakes, to clothing, hair and beauty services and even a free eye examination from our resident optometrist, plus much more. 

“It’s a great way to say thank you to our customers for their continued support while showcasing the amazing breadth of independent businesses we have at Warrington Market.”

Traders are anticipating a high level of interest in the Christmas promotion and have set a limit of one entry per customer, per postcode, per day, to provide all visitors with a fair chance of winning of the daily prizes on offer.

Entry forms are located on stalls throughout the market.
