The Mercury’s Christmas competition starts in style this week, with prizes worth £2,000 to give away over the festive season.
Five Gold Rings begins on Thursday, with the Mercury and Weston Business Improvement District teaming up to give away four prizes worth £500 at the late-night shopping events in town.
Parking will be free in the Sovereign Shopping Centre after 3pm and lucky winners will walk away with the perfect present for a loved one.
The first night of the competition coincides with the illumination of Weston’s Christmas lights in the Italian Gardens, with the festivities starting at 5pm.
