Advent Calendar encourages local Christmas shopping

Horsham Rural City Council’s Roaming Advent Calendar is back in 2022 with customers rewarded daily for shopping local this Christmas.

Starting Thursday 1 December and ending on Christmas Eve, the Roaming Advent Calendar will see shoppers go into a daily draw to win a $200 voucher.

To enter people simply need to make a purchase at the nominated business for that day.

Advent Calendar winners will be drawn each day and notified by phone.

Mayor Robyn Gulline said that encouraging people to shop local this holiday season was a way to support local businesses.

“After a difficult few years, now is a great time to do your Christmas shopping locally. We have fantastic retail stores, hospitality businesses and service providers that will have something perfect for your nearest and dearest this Christmas,” she said.
