More Local Business Sign Up to Sponsor Weymouth's BIG Christmas

More local businesses have signed up to sponsor Weymouth’s BIG Xmas.  ASDA have taken the Gold sponsorship package for Weymouth’s BIG Christmas and a further 6 businesses have now signed up as sponsors.

One of the Bronze sponsors, Brian Cooper, Owner of Resort Marketing said “Best known for our Resort tourist magazine, the team at Resort Marketing has also been involved with large events for many years, including the Pommery Dorset Seafood Festival. It is therefore our pleasure to support Weymouth’s Big Christmas, with its real ice rink bringing people into the town to enjoy the festivities and to do their Christmas shopping. The enhanced lighting won by Weymouth BID last Christmas made a big difference to the look and feel of Weymouth and we are looking forward to seeing our town looking festive in the coming weeks”

First time sponsor, Craig Oakes of new business, Oakes Insure said “Oakes Insure are looking forward to the townsfolk of Weymouth & Portland having a fantastic Christmas for all. Here’s to a nice December of festive cheer provided by Weymouth BID”.  

New Sponsor, Clive Garman of Sherrens Print and Weyprint said “Sherrens and now proud owners of Weyprint are happy to sponsor Weymouth’s BIG Christmas 2017. We know first-hand how important local businesses are for the town centre and the value of keeping the town alive by generating increased footfall out of season.   Having a skate rink over the festive period, means local businesses should benefit from visiting families and friends, this becomes an ideal opportunity for supporting businesses to sponsor such a great event for everyone to enjoy during the festive shopping period.  We would like to thank customers old and new a fantastic Christmas and a prosperous New Year from everyone at Sherrens and Weyprint”

Steve Newstead Weymouth BID Chair said “We have taken a lot of time and effort this Christmas to make sure that businesses have the opportunity to be involved.  Sponsorship is an important part of delivering a successful Christmas event and it gives businesses the chance to get in front of new and existing customers at the ice rink and on line at www.weareweymouth.co.uk.  WE Welcome Asda as our Gold Sponsor and our new Bronze sponsors too”.  

The BIG Christmas Ice Rink will open on Thursday 30th November when it will be opened by the Mayor of Weymouth & Portland for VIP skating sessions for sponsors and guests. Special £5 Friday tickets will be available for everyone on Friday 1st December after which bookings will be open for all ice rink tickets at £7.50 for a 45 minute ice skating session which includes skate hire.  Book at www.weareweymouth.co.uk/christmas.   New for 2017 will be “More space to Skate” sessions for families with younger children, Silent Disco evenings and also competitions with Dorset Echo and Wessex FM to win skating tickets.
