This Christmas, we want local retailers, shoppers and businesses to join us in a #ChristmasinKettering social media campaign to show off what is on offer across the Borough of Kettering.
We’re keen to help promote the town’s offer to encourage more shoppers into the area over the important festive shopping period by creating a buzz on Twitter, Instagram and Facebook.
How can I get involved?
Shops and businesses: Post images of your products, offers and events on Twitter, Instagram or Facebook and use the #ChristmasinKettering hashtag.
We’ve attached some images which you can use but we’d encourage you to post images of your own products and posters with the hashtag to promote yourselves.
Visitors: If you’re at an event, have found a product you’d like to recommend, or seen a nice Christmassy photo opportunity – tweet or post and include #ChristmasinKettering!
All Twitter and Instagram social media posts will be added to our campaign wall highlighting the wide range of what’s on offer locally.
As well as retweeting/reposting on our @ThisisKettering social media accounts, we’ll also be writing a series of blogs to highlight the best of what shoppers will find, based on the posts we receive, so make sure you’re featured!
