2017 saw the return of the popular, free to enter, ‘Where are the Kingswood snowmen?’ competition.
The competition again offered entrants who found the names of the snowmen hidden inside or in the windows of the participating shops the chance to win a chocolate bar or healthy snack.
However, there was also a free draw, with prizes including a Lidl hamper, a cake firework in the shape of a snowman and an adoption package from Horseworld.
The event started on Small Business Saturday, Saturday 2nd December 2017 and ended at 4pm on Saturday 23rd December.
The Kingswood snowman drew the names of prize-winners at 4:30pm on 23rd December 2017 in front of the Christmas tree in the Kings Chase Shopping Centre.
This event is organised by the Kingswood Business Association (KBA), which is dedicated to helping Kingswood businesses prosper.
Whether you are a single tradesperson or a large high street store you are welcome to become a member.
