Have your say

How about this for an early Christmas present?

The Gazette, in conjunction with Harry Ramsden at the Tower, are giving children across Blackpool, Fylde and Wyre the chance to win a sack of presents for Christmas plus a slap up family meal worth £200 courtesy of Harry Ramsden! To have the chance to win, all you have to do is paint or draw a picture of Santa Claus!

We will feature the top entries in The Gazette in December and the drawing judged the best by our panel of judges will win a bumper bag of goodies in time for Christmas plus the family meal. Two runners up will also win a Harry Ramsden’s meal voucher worth £50.

So if you are 12 years old or under, grab your paintbrush or felt tips now and get to work! You can make your drawing as colourful or sparkly as you like!

To enter, simply send your drawing with details of your name, address, age and telephone number (and the name of your school) clearly written on the reverse, to Paint Santa, The Gazette, Avroe House, Avroe Crescent, Blackpool FY4 2DP.

Closing date for entries is Friday December 9. All entries must be no bigger than A4 size portrait style. Usual Gazette competition rules apply. Prize meals must be taken before January 31st 2017.

A word from our sponsor:

“Next Gen” Artists to Feature in “Next Gen” Harry’s

With its modern design, fun “Selfie pod”, LED screens, smoothie and juice bars, craft beer, gin and cocktail bars, not to mention the most amazing food, the next generation Harry Ramsden restaurant at Blackpool Tower is the ideal place for a fun family feast, every day! And this festive season, Harry’s is the proud sponsor of the Gazette’s Paint a Santa competition which is open the children in the community.

Harry Ramsden at Blackpool Tower Operations Manager, Kim Jackson, says;

“Christmas is all about the little ones, so we are especially delighted to be involved with the Paint a Santa competition. We will display as many of the entries as possible in the restaurant as well as on the 17ft LED screens over the holidays. This will make it an extra special festive season for the team at the “next generation” Harry’s as we promote the community’s “next generation” of budding local artists!”
