Nominations open for Leamington's 'Walk of Fame'

Leamington Editorial 2nd Nov, 2020   0

A ‘WALK of fame’ will shine a light on Leamington’s stars over the festive period.

The Spa Stars walk of fame is being created by BID Leamington and will feature the names of 100 local people nominated for being a shining light.

The gold, sparkly stars will decorate walkways in the town centre, including around the Royal Priors Shopping Centre, Regent Court and the Town Hall.

People can nominate friends and loved ones until Sunday (November 8).

BID Leamington project manager Alison Shaw said: “From the start of November, we are going to be lighting up Leamington with a host of festive attractions including the Spa Stars walk of fame to enable people to avoid the usual Christmas rush.

“With the road closures to support social distancing and the measures implemented by businesses, we already have a safe shopping environment and by bringing Christmas to the town centre earlier we are giving people more time and space to enjoy the festivities.

“The idea of Spa Stars is for people to nominate someone who is a shining light in their life for a chance to see them celebrated in our walk of fame.

“It could be a friend, family member, neighbour or colleague and we are asking for a short reason for each nomination. It could be for a kind act, for their friendship or simply because they are loved.

“A total of 100 names will be selected at random to feature on a star that will make up the walk of fame around the town centre, and those not selected will be celebrated online via our Love Leamington website.

“The stars will be gold and sparkly so will be a great addition to Leamington’s display of lights and decorations, and another attraction for people to come into the town centre over the festive period and support business on their doorstep by shopping local.”
