Media opportunities Friday 5 December:

  • Nelson Market 11am – 11.30am Leeds Road, Nelson BB9 9SL
  • Colne Market 2.30pm – 3pm Market Street, Colne BB8 0HS

Anyone dreaming of a Christmas stocking full to bursting has a chance of winning Christmas gifts from Nelson and Colne Markets, thanks to two new videos.

“This is the first time we’ve made a video to show what our markets have to offer.

“And they are full of surprises!” So explained Councillor Paul White who leads on enterprise and promotion for the Council.

“These two minute videos are fun to watch and the traders are the stars,” said Paul.

“Anyone watching the new videos has the chance to win £40 to spend at the markets in the run up to Christmas,” explained Markets Manager Ian Varley.

“People have to spot five things which five different traders want to find in their stockings.
It’s easy, and it raises a smile,” said Ian.
Both videos can be seen on Pendle Council’s Facebook page.

Christmas shoppers who visit Nelson and Colne Markets from now until 19 December can also take part in the Spot the Stocking competition on stalls at the indoor and outdoor markets.

“People need to keep their eyes peeled,” said Ian.
“If they spot five stockings and list where they saw them by Friday 19 December they’ll have a chance of winning £40 to spend at the markets in time for Christmas.”

“It’s never been a better time to visit Nelson and Colne Markets,” agreed Councillor Paul White.
