Add sparkle to your windows to bring Christmas cheer

Local businesses are being encouraged to spread the festive spirit by decorating their window shopfronts as part of Hume City Council’s Hume Christmas Shopfront Competition.

Mayor of Hume City, Councillor Carly Moore said that along with helping to create a festive atmosphere, the competition was designed to help attract visitors and showcase Hume’s retailers.

“Hume businesses with a shopfront are encouraged to design a memorable Christmas display between Monday 19 November and Friday 13 December 2019,” Cr Moore said.

“Businesses are encouraged to create a display with visual impact that is creative, innovative and uses colour. Decorations do not need to be extravagant as often the simplest ideas can be the most effective.
