We have our late night shopping on Friday 26th November where Santa and the elf will be switching on the new Christmas tree which money was raised for by the businesses and a very kind and generous donation from Fraserburgh Rotary Club at 6 pm. The you can get a “Selfie with the Elfie" and try and find the 6 elves - Corbie, Dundarg, Mormond, Faithlie, Kinnaird and Philorth (more details below) and see Santa drive round in his sleigh from 6-8pm. There will be many shops open late with brilliant bargains and offers.
We will have local crafters located in different businesses around the town and some may have events in store too.
The kids can post their letters to Santa in our postbox within Symposium between 22nd November and 20th December and if they put their names and addresses on Santa will write back to everyone. The kids can also spot the elf’s around the shops, pick up their entry forms from the elf on Friday 26th November or some of the many businesses around the town or simply print it off from Facebook Shop Fraserburgh. You can also get a sweetie from the elf too.
Our shop local loyalty cards will be starting the week of the 22nd November with a weekly prize draw every Monday up until 20th December. So for every £10. Spent in one of the 58 businesses around the town you will receive a stamp and once your card is filled up you can hand it back to any of the businesses to be in with a chance to win one of our fabulous hampers in the weekly draw. Your card will also be reentered into our grand finally draw at the end, so it’s double the chances to win.
We will also be hosting “festive fiver” on the weekend of the 18th Dec. Where there will be a section or table in the business filled with stocking fillers and treats all for under £5. It’s a bit of fun and great for any last minute bits and bobs or treats to yourself. So as you can see there’s loads of reasons to shop local this Christmas and also with the many church and organisations events happening in the town there is really something for everyone.
The Santa Post Box can be found at SYMPOSIUM for you to post your letters to Santa who will be making an appearance at the town late night shopping event on Friday 26th to turn on the tree lights.
Post your letters and get a reply by including address.
Letters will receive a reply when posted last day of postage 17th December.

Elf one – Mormond

Elf five – Kinnaird
Elf six – Faithlie
Once you have found all the elves you can upload your results to the Shop Fraserburgh Facebook page and a winner will win a goody bag. You can get a print out at the late night shopping event, download the checklist below or message your answers to the Shop Fraserburgh Facebook page.
Following a grant made by the Community Council, the local Rotary Club has also made a substantial donation to be used to purchase a ten metre LED outdoor Christmas tree for the town centre.
Welcoming the donation, Ainsley Dyga, chair of Broch Business Together said “This is a tremendous donation and very environmentally friendly as real trees will now no longer be needed and, because the lights are integrated, we won’t have to spend long hours putting up lights!”. The money was raised through the Rotary Club’s Annual Golf Competition organised by Alexander Rodgers and supported by many local businesses.
In the near future the Rotary Club will be offering for sale a unique Broch Gin which will make a fine Christmas present.
