Ryedale Christmas campaign 2021

Ryedale District Council ‘Ryedale festivities’

Ryedale festivities campaign has been launched to encourage residents to shop local and follow COVID-19 guidance.

Ryedale District Council is shining a festive light on local businesses that have good COVID-19 safety practices in place.

You can nominate a business now – we would love you to nominate us for our COVID-19 safety practices which we have followed and kept in place to keep our clients, staff and visitors safe as we navigate through this pandemic. It’s an opportunity to thank those who have been following the COVID-19 safety measures in place.

Ryedale District Council have said that with fewer restrictions in place this winter following the success of the COVID-19 vaccination programme, it’s important that citizens and visitors continue to help protect one another as they enjoy all that Ryedale has to offer this festive season and we agree with them. Their campaign focuses on the key behaviours and actions people can take to protect one another. They’re calling this Ryedale’s ‘grown up festive list’:

  • Meeting outdoors/letting fresh air in
  • Testing before higher risk events
  • Choosing to wear face coverings in enclosed spaces
  • Staying at home if you feel unwell
  • Washing your hands

In addition to the above, at Crombie Wilkinson, we are also still offering telephone and virtual appointments, so our clients do not have to visit our offices in Ryedale if they do not want to. We are offering in person appointments at Malton and Pickering when pre-booked. Our in person appointments mean you will be safe in our offices as we follow hand sanitising, social distancing and have screens in our reception and meeting room to keep people at a safe distance from each other.

How does the Ryedale Christmas campaign work?
Once they receive nominations, they’ll pop the business name in a hat and will highlight those picked at random in a campaign in the Gazette and Herald. They’ll highlight as many as they can as a thank you for businesses doing what they can to keep citizens and visitors safe during the pandemic.

The campaign will highlight businesses in each market town in alphabetical order: Helmsley, Kirkbymoorside, Malton, Norton and then Pickering.

When is the campaign happening?
The campaign starts on Monday 15 November. Businesses in Helmsley will then be featured from 22 November, followed by the other market towns.
