Powys based town centre regeneration company, Revive & Thrive is running its fourth national Christmas Light Competition and is encouraging Powys residents to get involved.

Newtown based Revive & Thrive is renowned for the challenges that it sets to town and city centres across the UK.  

The first Revive & Thrive Challenge took 10 town centres to Earls Court to win a prize package worth nearly £200,000.  The winner of this was Wyre Borough Council.

Since then, along with sponsor Blachere Illumination, the annual event has awarded over £60,000 worth of lights to towns and cities across England and Wales.

Revive & Thrive is currently on the ground working in Slough, Acton and Chippenham town centres and is the largest membership organisation for town, cities and Business Improvement Districts in the UK. The organisation is very keen to see Powys towns taking part in 2018.

Mark Barnes, MD and Founder of Revive & Thrive said: “In 2018 we yet again have another £20,000 prize package to award to 10 town centres.  Thanks to Blachere Illumination, the winner will leave with £10,000 of lights, with second place winning £2,000.  The remaining runners up will all receive £1,000 of lights each.”

Mr Barnes added “We are very proud of our heritage as a Powys business and we hope that residents across the county will take an hour to apply and make Christmas even more special this year for their high streets.”

Last year’s first place was Ilracombe with finalists representing towns and cities across the UK.

Whether your town wins or not, Mr Barnes is convinced that participating has its own value as it asks people to consider the wider economic and social benefits of lighting up a town centre.
