Home Christmas and New Year Be part of our #SupportLocal Christmas

Be part of our #SupportLocal Christmas

by Editor Lowton and Golborne News

If you run a small business in Lowton, Golborne, Culcheth or Newton-le-Willows, we want to help YOU reach more local customers this Christmas.

There’s a place in our festive #supportlocal articles for your business this year, whether you sell Christmas gifts or not. Perhaps you run a beauty business that’ll help people look their best for a Christmas party, or a home improvement business which can help people prepare for those extra seasonal house guests. We’re looking to support as many local businesses as possible.

We’ll be featuring businesses who offer presents, decorations, food, and anything else that’s part of the pre-Christmas build up. We also want to showcase as many festive events as possible and encourage people to try out the incredible festive menus at our local restaurants, pubs and cafes.

And being included is FREE – with additional bonuses for our Featured Businesses.

Here’s what we have planned – and how you can get involved:

Christmas Gift Guide

Our popular Christmas Gift Guides will return!

Last year, we invited all local businesses to include an item in our #SupportLocal Christmas Gift Guides for both Lowton and Golborne and Newton-le-Willows, which were seen by thousands of local people looking for present inspiration in the run up to the big day.

Once again, being included in our Shop Local Gift Guides will be completely free.

To be included for free:
Send us details of one product or service, plus one image, and we’ll make sure you’re included in either the Lowton and Golborne Gift Guide, or Newton-le-Willows. We’ll link through to your listing in our Local Directory.

As a bonus for our ‘Featured’ Businesses:

Those who’ve taken out a Premium Listing in our Local Directory will get top billing in the Christmas Gift Guide. You can:

  • Include up to four different images, showcasing several gift ideas
  • Include a link straight from the Gift Guide to your online shop, increasing conversions!
  • Appear in both Gift Guides – here on Lowton and Golborne News, and over on our sister site, Newton-le-Willows News.
(Not yet Featured? It costs just £45 for six months, and priority inclusion in our SupportLocal articles is just one of the benefits. Email us for more info).

Christmas Eating Out guide

If you run a pub, restaurant or cafe that’ll be offering Christmas menus, we want to hear from you.

Our festive eating out guide will go live soon, helping people locally make decisions about where to eat in the run up to Christmas, or at New Year.

Let us know what’s on your menu, your special offers, and send us a nice picture to show off the experience.

Being included is completely free.

Featured Business bonus:

With a Premium Listing in our Local Directory, you’ll also get:

  • Prominent inclusion at the top of the Festive Eating Out Guide
  • Include a slideshow of images and direct links to your menus and booking pages!
  • Appear in both Festive Eating Out Guides – here on Lowton and Golborne News, and over on our sister site, Newton-le-Willows News.

Let people know about your Christmas or New Year events

After a rather subdued festive season last year, we’re hoping to see our Events Guide bursting with festive events and New Year celebrations in 2021!

Let us know what you have planned – simply drop us an email with details and a picture, and we’ll do the rest!

There’s no charge to be included – but if you want to super-charge your promotion you can make your Event Featured in our Calendar in the run up to Christmas for just £45. We’ll help with extra promotion on social media, too.
