Wilmslow businesses join in the Christmas Tree Festival

Posted on: Monday 1 December, 2014 | Filed in: General News

Mackenzie Marketing , Nationwide Safety Surfaces and Castletons Accountants, three Wilmslow based companies have joined in the Christmas Spirit this week as they have provided and decorated trees for the Christmas Tree Festival at St Bartholomew’s Church in Wilmslow.

The Christmas Tree Festival runs from Friday 28th November until Sunday 30th November. Over 60 local businesses, schools and organisations have provided a tree in this year’s Festival. The festival will feature entertainment from the brass section of the Wilmslow Symphony Orchestra on Friday and The Manchester Gospel Choir will be singing on Saturday.

Catherine Mackenzie, Managing Director of Mackenzie Marketing, commented: “St Bartholomew’s Church looks very festive with a real mixture of trees, each decorated to reflect the activities of the company or organisation which provided it. Nationwide Safety Surfaces is rather different having been decorated with artificial grass and rubber tarmac to showcase the surfaces that they install.

“We are sure the trees will be admired by many Wilmslow residents over the weekend; particularly with the inaugural Santa Dash organised by the Wilmslow Business Group and the Christmas Lights Switch On.”

Admission to the Festival is £2 for adults and free for children under 12. All proceeds raised from the Festival will go to the Friends of the Parish of Wilmslow. This will help support various aspects of the Church, including music and the fabric of the building.

Mackenzie Marketing supports Travelwise International at Wilmslow Football Academy Event

Although the actual World Cup proved to be a very disappointing venture for England, Mackenzie Marketing was delighted to spend four days at the Wilmslow Mini World Cup Event hosted by Wilmslow Football Academy, with our client Travelwise International.

This fabulous event was sponsored by Travelwise International, and involved 14 local primary schools battling it out on Lindow Primary School’s football pitch for the Mini World Cup trophy.

Mackenzie Marketing helped the Travelwise International team set up an inviting marquee in order to create a data capture opportunity. Mackenzie Marketing created the idea of free Pimms for adults, a prize draw and free squash for children to entice people to engage with the local independent travel agency, Travelwise International.

The promise of free Pimms obviously worked, as the event significantly boosted the company’s profile in the local area.

Ex United Footballer, Micheal Carrick was at the event giving out medals to the winning teams, below he is pictured with Christian Gleave, Chief Executive of Travelwise International.
