Newton-le-Willows Christmas Gift Guide: Support Local Businesses

by Gemma Melling

This Christmas, let’s see how much we can #supportlocal, choosing small, independent local businesses over the high street chains or online giants where we can. 

Our Gift Guide is here to make that as easy as possible. Whether you’re looking for the perfect gift, stunning decorations or snuggly pyjamas!

And please, if you buy from any of these fantastic local businesses, remember to tell them that you found them in the Newton-le-WIllows News Christmas Gift Guide (‘cos we’re a small local business, too!) Thank you.

P.s. if you’re selling something for Christmas, it’s not too late to be added. Email us asap.
