2016 – Euro’s and return of the Spot The SOng Competition

As we all know the Euro football competion happend in 2016 and had us all donning the England shirts to support the lions on their quest for European glory.


Due to the Euros being held that summer, a “Euro 2016” competition was launched for Newport businesses. All who signed up to take part and were each allocated a Country to support in their window displays.

This definitely added a competitive edge as the teams were slowly knocked out! It’s all a bit of fun and the public were very keen to keep up with how each businesses team were doing.


November and December saw the return of our “Spot the Song” Christmas Competition!  This festive favourite tasked shoppers with identifying festive songs and carols from the lyric displayed in shop windows and gets everyone flexing their musical muscles!

This event was kindly sponsored by Crossprint and the County Press, and local businesses supplied gifts and vouchers. A gift hamper worth over £200 was the Star Prize, with Cineworld tickets and a “Taste of the Wight” food hamper as additional festive giveaways.
